The Door to Life

The following poem is in response to Amreen’s PTWWW ‘Be Inspired Challenge’ #12 which was to write a found poem (i.e. take an existing text and re-work it into a poem).  I decided to use the weather forecast of the upcoming days as a basis for the poem, with a few minor changes…

Thursday 24 January

Cloudy
with a cool change
showers scattered
developing
during the morning;
a chance of afternoon
or even evening
thunder-
storm.

Northerly winds
fifteen to twenty
kilometres per hour
light becoming
during the morning  –
then
southwesterly becoming
fifteen to twenty five
kilometres per hour
during the evening.

Sunday 27 January

Sunny.
Light wind becoming.
Northerly
fifteen to twenty
kilometres per hour
early in
the morning.
