Set Against Water
into a bubble
Inspired by Found Poetry Review and JF Ptak Science Books Quick Post on “Clouds”, and written for Miz Quickly’s Stone Nail Soup prompt. Note: “Found” text is from JF Ptak Science Books, Quick Post from “A Vapour Ascendeth from Water (1726)”, Gutenberg Project, and the poem “Clouds”.
Just for the fun of it, this is an example of Erasure Poetry. This is a page of text where the image is layered with only a selected few words showing through. The original text is from Victor Hugo’s collection of poems “1888“. More examples of the fun at Found Poetry Review can be seen at my profile page The Found Poetry Review’s PoMoSco Challenge. Wander around and enjoy the fun.

and the air grew round and nodding.
Found him in the morning, lost
in the voice of flags and a bugle.

The Time is 5 Mins Until 5 in the Afternoon …
And it was more than
a passing curiosity.
and looked like
an English walnut.
