Welcome to Writing Prompt Pit Stop! Today’s PoMoSco prompt # 13 was right up my alley as it combined two of my loves, art and poetry! It was to make an erasure poem…using art in any way you wanted…. So, here is my Picture It poem, “Extraordinary Common Birds.” Enjoy!
Here is the Day 13 prompt, Picture It!:
Take your inspiration from Tom Phillips’ A Humument (http://www.tomphillips.co.uk/humument/slideshow/1-50) and create a poem that’s part erasure, part art.
Instead of simply marking out the text you don’t need, use markers, crayons, paint and other materials to turn it into a picture. Not a strong artist? Experiment with collage, using cutouts from magazines and other sources to obscure your unused text.
Scan your completed work — or take a picture of it — and upload it to the site.
