       This is a found poem from pg. 25 of Kate Chopin's The Awakening. I just circled words to make the poem. In college, the professor had bought a book called The Humbert (not a clue who write it). What the poet did was take a book and paint over most of the words, leaving some words unpainted. The unpainted words formed a found poem. She told us to do something similar. So, I took The Awakening and just circled words to form a poem. I've done some by scanning in pages of books and "painting" them in Photoshop.

    MLA Citation:

    Chopin, Kate. The Awakening. New York: Avon, 1972. 25.

    A certain light
    at that early period
    moved her to dreams
    Beginning to realize
    a ponderous weight of wisdom
    whispering, clamoring, murmuring
    the soul to touch the sea.

      I am glad you "found" this poem buried in the thoughts of another piece. How wonderful that is!!!

    In the movie "The Omega Code" the bible contains hidden verses about the appocolypse that scholars are trying to decipher.

    My friends and I used to do this in elementary school...Crossing out words in our books and adding some strategic letters to form dirty little writings...LOL

    This is such a facinating topic...Thank you so much!!!!! (Sorry this is so long!)

      I think the idea behind this poem makes it all the more fantastic, and the last line is beautiful. "The soul to touch the sea." I wish I'd wrote it. It's kind of like in "Mystery, Alaska" when Russell Crowe's character is apologizing to his wife and crosses out some of the words in the "Dear Abby" coloumn. Have you seen that?

      I like the last line very much. "The soul to touch the sea" great image. I don't really understand the creating process just as Silver but you defenitely made a great poem out of it.

      I am not sure I know what you mean as far as creating this goes--but I love the end-product. I think a lot about light--and shadows--and how in "certain light" things looks different--which leads one to think and feel differently---reality is the same--we just perceive it differently--in a "certain light"..Silver
