Found poetry is using a text where you choose certain words out to create your own “poetry”. I chose a page from my favorite book Gabriel Garcia Marquez: Love in the time of cholera.
The words were popping to my eyes from the text, I didn’t really need to look for any special meaning. As they popped I added some illustrations and finally I blacked out the rest of the text.
It says: “in honor of the ladies flowerpots, a bird of paradise accomplished what they wanted”… so that’s my poetry.
And my illustration: bird of paradise and some flowers painted with acrylics. Finally I added some stitches.
I am attaching my journal page to Journal 52.
