Found Word Poetry: Introduction

I took a page out of a very boring book on language usage and made it into a bit of muse through technique of found poetry. Here's the results:


The space of plain style/ Concentrate on essentials / Usage commonly violated.

Three rules/ Instead/ of one belief/ Internal punctuation

principles and paragraph/ the widest application/ The small portion/ of style

experience has past profit/ Individual problems/ of body sections/ reference in man

English helped Mr. Rule 10/ from suggestions/ for study or style/ Correct Compositors

New Flash Fiction: Waiting (#140ffb)

Started a new flash fiction piece. As I like to do, I try not to plot it out but rely on poetic feeling and expression of what is going on in my life spiritually or emotionally to color it. I use form to help structure those feelings. Here is the running twitter posts of the microfiction in chronological order. Use the hashtag #140ffb to follow the tweets:

It was the silence that troubled her the most. Like a bee hive in her head. Like a long dog moan. She stared at the door and waited.

In the yawning of minutes, she wraps her thoughts in strips of yesterday's memories. Heart beats echo.

(edit note: I changed the voice from 1st person to 3rd to be more consistent).

With a sweet smell of lilacs the room shifts from dark to dawn. She hears the approach. The movement of grass under footsteps.

He is now.
