I suck at reading poetry (except the Psalms, maybe), but I appreciate this beautiful art form. I sometimes read articles or watch videos about poetry, and I am amazed by all the ways people can express all sort of feelings through words.
And then there are all this ways of doing poetry… it really goes beyond me!
One very cool way of crafting poems is called blackout poetry. Basically, you pick a page of a book, newspaper, or magazine and rip it off. Then, you select the words that compose your poem, from top left to bottom right. Then you blackout everything else with ink or paint. You just made a poem with someone else’s words!
