Today’s assignment from Daily Post, Writing 201: Poetry, was to use found poetry, a landscape, and enumeratio. Found poetry are words found in other places, such as books, magazines, magnetic poetry tiles, or anywhere. You put them together to form your own poem. Enumeratio is a listing of several ideas, or things. I had trouble finding words in other places…well, I found words, but then tried to take a picture of them, which didn’t work…they wouldn’t show up in the picture very good. So, instead, here’s a picture I took of a beautiful sunrise, a while back.
CONJURING THE WORDS
Stand in the air…look up at the ground…
Forests, mountains, sand, and sea,
All I see is magic to me.
Stars, planets, sun, and moon…
Morning, evening, night, and noon…
Ever changing, dark to light,
I live in such a wondrous sight.
Up into the stratosphere,
It’s aura far, yet still so near.
Hard as ice, or soft summer breeze,
Give me more of all that, please.
I found the words inside my brain…
The horde in there, does cause such pain.
I conjure them up, to write them down…
Now, I can smile instead of frown.
Yes, you know not what I mean,
To live and breathe a waking dream.
So beautiful, it makes me cry…
My landscape is of course…the sky.
