After being stranded indoors all day yesterday, I couldn’t wait to head out this morning between the raindrops for a neighborhood walk. As I walked I was thinking about the National Writing Project invitation to create a found poem to share this week. Only minutes into my walk I started to notice words and phrases, I collected them via my phone camera and compiled them into a found poem when I arrived home (only slightly dampened by the next round of showers).
When I showed it to my husband, he immediately asked, “How do you read this?” wondering if there was a right order to follow the words. I ask each reader to find their own path, read your own meaning into this text. And maybe, you’ll also consider creating your own found poem (with photos or not).

Very fun, Kim! And you inspired me to “find” poetry in the signs I’ve taken a picture of over our travels.
Thanks for another great post!
Thanks Sheri. Nothing like a retrospective found poem!
Thanks for the inspiration — finding a way through uncertainty— adapting as we can!

I love it Kevin. The poems are there if we stop to look. Thanks for stopping by!
