Found Poems No. 49-52: the Sigh of Trees to Introverts

Last week’s BlackOut Poetry Challenge was to celebrate an Instagram poem with a blackout of their work. To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about blacking out another poet’s work.

Can we really find new poems within poems?

The answer turned out to be yes, and kind of.

Here are my selections with full credit to the original authors, all four of whom are the poet-team behind @blackoutpoetrychallenges.

Found Poem No. 49, inspired by Brenda Ross Jette @haikuetry.

Sweet sigh of trees,
a whisper dance of heaven.
