Blackout Poetry

Addie started it all! And since I am a big inggetero, here is my first attempt in Blackout Poetry! I just hope it makes sense. :)

untitled

When our minds run out of working memory
with no recollection
or
without comprehending any of the words


your attention absorbed
any left over
to remember a part
said in a statement

overall
thoughts drift away,
finding positive
creative and inventive moments
Is
likely noted.

  2. Wow, Orange. This is awesome. I'm glad you tried this one. Why is it that most have had their beginner's luck whilst I didn't? Good job and I hope you keep at it?

    May I also ask your permission to have this featured in my poetry blog? Does this have a title? Like "Memory" or something?

    2. "a big inggetero"

      I should have considered that as hint. I am so embarrassed. I am sorry. Eee.

  3. LJ, I'm not sure if my first comment went in or not. I find blogspot not user-friendly when it comes to comments. Or maybe it's just me. I just want you to know that I appreciate your linking my blog to this post and that you have no idea how thrilled I am to see this attempt of yours. My first attempt was so-so while this one shows potential so I really hope that you keep at it.

    And may I also ask your permission to have this posted in my poetry blog? Does this come with a title, like "Memory" or something?
