Hey there everyone.
I’m participating in NaPoWriMo 2020, if you aren’t following the NaPoWriMo website already then go check it out at www.napowrimo.net.
Today I have used the most exquisite and beautiful poem as my inspiration for my found poem, I immediately fell in love with it the moment I read it!
You can read the poem that I used as inspiration here, written by the enormously talented Marge Piercy.
Finally, here is my own romantic found poem, thank you for reading and good luck with all of your NaPoWriMo adventures throughout this month!
“Eyes All the Colours of the World” by David Ellis Purple tulips, lush velvet On lips, on hands Warm as cinnamon Roses tumbling Their perfumed fruit, hanging A bouquet, a song Of all the things you praise The depth of you, is as wine Sipping from each other’s arms Eyes all the colours of the world Our bodies, of fire
