Writing 201: Landscape

I do love landscapes, as I’m sure you’re well aware, and Iowa has no shortage of beautiful vistas.  Naturally, I was pretty excited when I saw that today would be all about landscapes.  The challenge was to do a found poem and use enumeratio, but I think I did a better job with the enumeratio yesterday.  Still, uh…well, it’s a pretty little poem, and if I hadn’t been running late this morning, I’d have stopped and snapped a picture of the trees I found so inspiring this morning.

Instead, you get this – a picture of my found poem, and a proper transcription of the same.  Happy Thursday! 🙂

Leafless trees reach
For the sky
Amid the frozen waves
Of an icy sea,
Mother Nature’s sculptures
On show for all
To see.

(Just for the record, these cuttings are supposed to represent a tree, not a chicken’s foot.  Or a cactus.  Or any of the zillion things that aren’t trees that I’m beginning to see as I look at this picture.  Guess it’s a good thing I’m not paid to artistically arrange pieces of paper.) 🙂
