Poetry Friday: Found Poem in a Sculpture Garden

Poetry Friday round-up is with Irene @ Live Your Poem

After my weekend in Houston for NCTE, I took an extended vacation with my friend Margaret Simon to explore south Louisiana. After a day in her hometown of New Iberia, we ventured to the big city of New Orleans. She took me to the French Quarter for lunch and a walk through the quaint streets, ending at Jackson Square to see the beautiful St Louis Cathedral before enjoying cafe au laits and beignets at Cafe’ du Monde.

The next day we explored the Sculpture Garden at the New Orleans Museum of Art. While walking through the gardens, Margaret started drafting a found poem as we viewed the sculptures and read about them from the app on our phones. I followed suit, since Margaret is always such an inspiration to me in my poetry writing.

    Hi, Dani! I’m so glad I found you here at Poetry Friday and glad that we met at NCTE. Your poem has such wonderful rhythm — that tension and balance captured in the sound of the words.
