Found poetry is a term for poems that are composed from words and phrases found in another text.

This site contains links to articles, poems, videos and resources on writing found poems, and keeping your eyes, ears and heart open enough to find them.

You'll also find my own found poetry here (by way of example and illustration) plus a weird and wonderful assortment of creative quirkiness, invitations to the life poetic all, that I've found on the web.

LINES OF LIFE
Hidden lives: the pain of confinement.
Letters home: the long walk to freedom.
The past is myself,
A heartbreaking work of staggering genius.
