Finding Poetry

Rick Daddario is amazing.  If you have not visited his site, please do.  He writes, he creates, he inspires.  Best of all, he encourages.  That encouragement led me to try found poem.  Rick provided the page, one which he dabbled with on his The Sound of a Cat post.

Below is what I found.  If you’d like to give it a try, just contact him in the comments and he’ll send you the page.

      Howdy ma’am. I do love it when you wiggle just so. 😉 I enjoyed that exercise. If another good page presented itself, I wouldn’t mind erasing it . Good is still happening. May GOOD shower in your neck of the woods as well.

      I purposefully abstained from looking at yours again before attempting my own. Thank goodness for my poor memory. I gravitated toward very different words and images, right? Very, very fun to play. Thank you my inspirational friend.

      I chuckled reading your comment because I left a similiar comment on Rick’s post, which is exactly what led to my playing. I like yours better, by the way. 😉

If you leave tracks, I'll find you.
