Okay, I’m back

BULLETIN: DON’T FORGET THAT TONIGHT IS THE LAST NIGHT TO POST YOUR WORD OF THE MONTH POEMS FOR JULY!!

Hi everyone,

We had a good time on vacation and got home to bed about 3:00 Sunday morning. It’s always good to be home.

Thanks for all the poems, comments, and ideas that came along while I was slathering on lotion at the beach. I’m eager to read and comment!

Have you read the Found Poems that continue to come in? They’re great fun and, I think, an excellent exercise in using our powers of observation to spot the poetic among the prose of everyday writing. On my trip home on United I discovered two more examples. One came from an advertisement about snoring and the other was from a short, humorous article by Kimball Taylor about a surfing contest for dogs. I’m eager to send them along to Georgia Heard.

  1. Welcome back, David! It’s amazing where they can be found. I also discovered an example while camping this weekend. It’s from a magazine, Air Miles Inspired Living 2 page article wriitten by Chris Daniels is entitled, Planet-friendly shopping.

    Sustainable Shopping
    by Lucia Renzo

    Eat local and in-season.
    Buy local ingredients,
    Imported meal,
    Contributes to global warming.

    Look for green label,
    Symbols that are certified.
    Environmentally friendly brands
    Make better purchasing decisions.

    Pay attention to packaging;
    Any recycled content?
    Less packaging?
    Reuse for another purpose?

    Vote with your purchase,
    Choose the most package reduction.

    • Lucia,

      You’re so right. Thanks for your discovery! If you don’t mind, can you also post this on the page with the rest of the Found Poems? I’m afraid it will be overlooked here and, if I do it for you, it will come out over my name instead of yours.

      Thanks!

      David
