Random Poetry Continued After the gluing, the playing, then the crafting begins.
Random Gluing Product You have glued down the words randomly. Now punctuate them. Sometimes I like to doodle around them to develop ideas. Example next slide.
Begin Crafting Your Words After the punctuation play, choose words from the random poem you like and begin putting them in a poetic creation of your own, adding your own words, modifying as you go suit your purposes. Example next slide.
Continue Crafting Your Poem Rewrite your lines, crafting and modifying your intitial creation to refine the meaning (emotinal, intellectual, experiential, sensual) you begin to see in the words. Example next slide.
And Craft Some More Several drafts of your poem, at least two before your final, will help you to make it more of your own work, conveying the meanings you want. Example next slide.
Create a Final Typed Version Once you have played enough, type up a version that is clean and will serve as your published work. Example next 2 slides.
Ominous Child Wind growling trees, only darker beneath a risen sun, fallen, golden leaves sifting, whispering into the heavy air, too heavy to escape, too heavy to hear. Ominous steps, and dropping sound, stalling on open ground. Aimless children moving beneath, stuggling as under silenced pistol fire, bare skin scraping bare-trunked trees, black limbs that growl, growling under white sullen light.
Ominous feet, opening soundless, moving ominous, small, white. Lone child calling, clawing at autumn air. The child fallen, only darker against the risen sun, moving beneath brother leaves, scraping bare-trunked trees. Aimless child chafing growling age, raging, rough.
