erasure poem

Monday, March 3

In my creative writing class this week we talked about erasure poems, sometimes called found poetry. Where you take another work and find words among the sentences, crossing out what remains, and making your own poem from the ashes of the other work. I loved it so much. Here's my take on it. Excuse the picture quality.


  1. This is beautiful. I want to pick up some books from the thrift store now and try this. x

  2. you see this kind of thing sometimes on pinterest and i didn't realize it was a REAL thing you know? i love it, i really do.

  3. i looove doing that. such beautiful phrases can appear to you so suddenly. 'he's flooded with remembrances' <3

  4. So, so beautiful, i love doing this, I did it to the whole book of Alice in Wonderland when I was 15, it was so dreamy, but I threw it our in of my mass purgings. I wish I kept it! This is so beautiful though, and the pictures are so lovely too xxx

  5. gorgeous! thanks for sharing - your mind is wonderful.


  6. this is cool! i have seen this done before but never tried it myself. do the words just pop out to you? is there a technique? i love how it is both poetry and art.

  7. You did a wonderful job. You inspired me to give it a try.

  8. This is lovely. I want to do it!! <3 <3

  9. Although you will often find that a self catering apartment is the cheaper option it is possibly one to avoid if this is your first skiing holiday. Unless you are going with seasoned skiers who can show you the ropes and will be there to assist you, ski resorts can be hard work to get to grips with for the first few days.
