I saw a bird once made of words on a page. I was fascinated by it when I was young. I still am fascinated.
I love the look of concrete poetry. The combination of an image and words raises it above a poem. It is a visual piece to enhance the poem or stand on its own.
If you haven't noticed, I have never posted a concrete poem here. I have never had much luck with formatting. I can barely format my own "normal" poems without error. Maybe it has to do with my inability to even draw stick figures. Or maybe it isn't for everyone.
Have you ever tried a concrete poem? If so, how did it turn out?
I would have to say it is one of the more demanding poetic forms. What do you consider a demanding form?
Let me know your thoughts!
P.S. I updated my "Announcements" page and am still looking for poems/guest posts!
