I haven’t been able to keep up the past few days with blogging about my PoMoSco postings. Here they are
A few notes about these found poems. “Voices” is a cento taken from Annoyed Grunt by Tom C. Hunley, a friend and classmate of mine.
“A Mystery” is done in honor of Sonnya Espinal, one of the first people I met when I moved to Japan in 1997. She’s been a good friend and supporter.
“The Wild Boy Sings” is a found poem with source material from “Hugging the Jukebox” by Naomi Shihab Nye. Naomi was my first poetry teacher/mentor and I’ve been fortunate enough to have kept in touch with her over the past 25 years. I wouldn’t still be writing if not for her.
“2 haiku” is derived from three haiku from Jack Kerouac’s Book of Haiku.
I hope you’ll check them out and follow all the effort of the Poetry Month Scouts at our website. I’d like to again thank the Found Poetry Review for this opportunity.
