Haiku Wednesday: Icicles


Although I’ve been on the alert for found poems for several years, I am indebted to The Odd Inkwell for the idea of actually slicing and dicing text, then arranging it into poetic form. Because I prefer not to cut up books, I use whatever sources are available. These words came from an old issue of National Geographic.
