choose your favorite novel or book of poetry. Randomly turn to a page in the book and fold the page in half towards the spine of the book. You should now be able to see the beginning of sentences/lines on one page, and the endings of sentences/lines on another page. Now here is where the fun begins! A sonnet, in all minimal terms, is made up of 14 lines. Choose 14 of the broken sentences/lines in front of you to create a found poem. There are a few rules though, read carefully:
Do NOT force it to make sense.
Do NOT unfold your page to see the real sentence/line
Choose a page that you are unfamiliar with so that you are not tempted to follow the preset subject matter.
Lastly, have fun. Quarky lines are a good thing. This is an opportunity for you to create imagery that you never would have thought of on your own.
Once your poem is done, label it poem a day poem #1 and you are on your way to 30 poems for the month of April! Be sure to put in a foot note so that you remember where the poems lines were generated from."
