"News print poetry", a form of "found poetry" or "blackout poetry." I took one story from the Orlando Sentinel newspaper each day and transformed it into a poem by creatively selecting words from the story. The words are kept in their original order and no words were added. The 2012 project is completed, but I add new poems from time to time.
I commented on my progress, and about writing in general, on a companion blog: http://newsprintpoetry.blogspot.com.
a great night for
stargazers, lovers, and
super moon will
rise on the horizon tonight.
its closest approach
and brighter than
and beautiful all
wherever you are, you
can see it.
Tonight, the moon will rise at 7:42 pm., become a
full moon at 11.25 pm, and become a super moon at 11:50 pm. The moon will
appear 16% bigger and 30% brighter as it makes its closest approach to Earth in
2012, only 221,802 miles away.
