I’ve been wanting to write a Found Poem for a while, so today I wrote a Terzanelle using lines from a few of my favorite poets. I jammed 4 poets plus me into 19 lines (and also jammed the MVB prompt word into that sentence). Shared with the Writers’ Pantry on 10/24.
I wake, and feel the fell of dark, not day
I wake to sleep and take my waking slow,
Hoping that dreams to better life give way.
What better life to see? I do not know,
Besides that mystery past Heaven’s gates —
I wake to sleep and take my waking slow.
