no matter where we went.
like a far away explosion,
like a rocket,
a slow-motion picture.
come hurtling down
in the late afternoon sunlight
serene and cool
Favorite blackout poem I've done so far. No lie. I don\'t really post my blackout poetry on here. I've only posted one or two. Maybe I'll start posting more.
I love doing this with old books. Great poem.
Oh, I love it.
I LOVE blackout poetry.. learned about it in my 20th century poetry class.. so many interesting ways of creating verse were explored then.
Blackout poetry is so much fun and a great stress reliever! I volunteer at my old high school and often do a blackout poetry session. I'll have to look up some more historical information on it to share with them next time!
You should try it out sometime!
Really good... Nice.
This is a really interesting concept!
Scorpions - You and I :3
I actually grew up with my parents listening to Scorpions. I didn't realize they had a song of the same title though, but I will check it out!
I wasn't sure why this grabbed my attention like it did. I stared at it for maybe 15 minuets. I thought about it and i came to the conclusion that this was a representation of memories. Memories of person or persons. The mind like the page becomes blacked out, the unimportant memories fall away. Only a few lines remain.
I'm glad you saw that. It definitely feels like a memory and it's why it's one of my favorite blackout poems I've made.
That's awesome! Thanks for sharing! I like what you did with yours to highlight the words. Have fun creating!
I really appreciate that you didn't completely black out the background text; it lets us see the genius in what you've done. Incredible work, and congratulations.
Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it. I tried doing it digitally once but the words completely blacked out doesn't feel quite right.
Really cool! I love it!
I read this and could not help but say aloud " My God, that is so cool and amazing!". Thank you so much for sharing.
Congrats on the DD! This is such a cool concept-- I've never seen poetry done like this before but I love it
Thank you so much! Blackout poetry is a lot of fun.

I like it! Its poetry intertext!
