Kimberlee Conway Ireton wrote this morning at Tweetspeak Poetry about Wave’s Erasure Poetry Page where they present a piece of writing. You take out words to create a poem. It’s kind of like the black-out poetry we did at Laity Lodge last fall.
Here’s the black-out poem I created then. You can’t read it well in that post.
The window of words
a joy to be savored,
looking for something . . . something.
in deep water.
Here are some erasure poems I tried today. If you click on the titles, you can see what the poem looked like in its erasure form. On the sidebar of that page, you can see the source text I used, read other poems, or write your own by clicking on “browse all texts.”
Go have some fun!
