I was going to post on something else today. I probably will, later today. But after reading all the comments on my previous post on how poetry is nothing but broken prose (and there’s a lot of truth in that), I thought it would be fun to see if we can convert any of our recent blog posts into a poem.
The rules are simple:
1. Take any recent blog post of yours (say, not more than a few months old).
2. Hit the Enter key at random intervals.
3. Copy the poem you get into the Comment space on this blog. You have to add a link to the post it is from.
Or, if you like, you can do this as a tag.
What do you guys think? I know I had great fun doing mine in the comments section of the previous post. I was doubled over laughing at the results.
Here it is, again:
The first paragraph in my post on tulips. It’s not a particularly good poem, but it is a poem, what?
It would be even better if you can come up with something really funny
Gray Day. The rain
has been falling
for the last couple of days,
obliterating my sunny mood,
pouring water over any
weekend plans, and reminding me
of the cold winter days
I thought I had left behind.
But the rain is good
for my tulips.
