Found Haiku 16/30 #npm30

Found poetry was on my mind after reading about Jone’s Classic Found Poetry Project. This found poem comes from the section of Linda Lappin’s creative writing guide, The Soul of Place, that focuses on what it means to be a flaneur and offers city-based creative writing exercises. The first line was found in Lappin’s words; the second line is a quotation from Katherine Mansfield; the third line is a quotation from Virginia Woolf.


city spectator
i have been a camera
an enormous eye


For my National Poetry Project, I’m playing along with the poetry calendar created by Margaret and Molly.

    I think found poetry is so challenging. I’m always in awe of people (like you) who make it look effortless. I love the way you combined these three author’s lines into a beautiful whole.
