Roaming the byways of literature

Found poetry

I have a liking for found poems, and so do several other WordPress bloggers. If you search the tags for ‘found poetry’ or ‘found poems’ you’ll find some interesting posts. There’s also a journal; The Found Poetry Review.

There are poetry and poetic sources in the most unlikely places. Recently I’ve been reading a lot of gardening books. It won’t surprise anyone that there’s much poetry there, but I’ve particularly come to like the chapter and heading titles.

Eastern Tranquility
Cool but colourful
Music and movement.

Pot up a fountain,
Spouting forth

Trickling trio
Percolating through.

Water …
Going with the flow.

  1. I too find poetry in various places. The Times on a Saturday often gives me phrases to play with. I enjoyed your gardening book poem very much 😊
