Tuesday Writing Challenge…

A day late (I know) but wanted to give Christine‘s (Go Dog Go Café) Tuesday Challenge a bash!

Today’s prompt:  Found Poem: A Brand New Poem in Three Easy Steps

Grab a paragraph of text from a favorite book make a found poem by breaking a passage in to lines. Edit as desired.  This is an opportunity to play with line breaks, rhythm, and sound.  Have some fun!

Taken from Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations:

I took her hand,

in mine.

And,

we went out of the ruined place.

And,

as the morning mists had risen long ago;

When I first left the forge,

so,

the evening mists were rising now.

And,

in all,

the broad expanse of tranquil light,

they showed to me;

I saw no shadow,

of another,

parting from her.
