found found poems!

Vine Leaves Literary Journal, issue 13What a lovely way to start Friday! Seven, count them, seven of my found poems are included in the brand-new edition of Vine Leaves Literary Journal, issue 13. You can read it online (or download a PDF) and like Vine Leaves on Facebook (where the found poems are included with all of the art and photography from Issue #13 in a Photo album).

Vine Leaves Literary Journal has a particular focus on the “vignette” — a form described as follows on the Vine Leaves website: “‘Vignette’ is a word that originally meant ‘something that may be written on a vine-leaf.’ It’s a snapshot in words. It differs from flash fiction or a short story in that its aim doesn’t lie within the traditional realms of structure or plot. Instead, the vignette focuses on one element, mood, character, setting or object. It’s descriptive, excellent for character or theme exploration and wordplay. Through a vignette, you create an atmosphere.”

…clusters of found words on vine leaves…yes!
