Daily Post Discover Challenge: Scrapbook Poetry

This last week’s challenge was to publish a post in the style of another genre.  I mulled this one over quite a bit – and came up with many amazing ideas.  Then, I looked on my desk where a pile of scrapbook papers were sitting.  Why not write a poem inspired by their pages?

 

So, this poem is written – with the sole inspiration of the scrapbook pages themselves.  I tried to directly use the designs on each page to lead through the course of the story.I hope you enjoy it.  I think it came out pretty well, but I not say this was an easy task.  So glad I did it – but I’m also glad it is done 🙂  Phew!

 

These are scrapbook pages, written in the style of a poem.

    Beautiful poetry even more beautifully presented !
    To be honest it was slightly distracting but that could be because it looked so lovely…very creative!

      I completely understand about the distraction, but I think putting the words on the pages (at least I hope) made you wonder more about what inside that page inspired the words. For me, whenever I read it – my eyes almost have to adjust. I had hoped to do more with the pages – as far as making actual scrapbook pages, but the project as it is took a lot of time already so I opted out. Perhaps I will revisit this project at an other time 🙂 Thank you very much for your wonderful comments.

        Hi Sumyana,
        You are very welcome and yes you have made the words sentiment reflect in the patterns of page that it is written which was very intriguing.
        🙂
