Erasure Poem , 11/29/12- 12/3/12

          Thanks go out to last weeks challenge, D'verse: An Erasure poem.
I had fun! I did not link. (I would choose to rearrange the layout on this but I resisted.)
     Taken from the first page of chapter:" Turning the Soil".(Page 13)
From:    The Wild Braid, Stanley Kunitz, w/ Genine Lentine .
        WW Norton & Co.       c.2003.
                           

                                         Cultivating

                  life
                                        of a world
                  experience,
                                      that depended on
          interplay of forces;
              in turn,  responded to my touch, my presence.


                                                Praise it leads

                 between the self and
                 the single flower
                       harmony     among all aspects of
                       domestication        taking                    

  the wild,                 elements that             shine

                               holds infinite possibilities. What sense
  its kingdom                       to convey?   It represents
                                                                      beautiful.

I like the concluding line...beautiful is the nature ~

This is a good technique though I haven't tried it yet ~

Have a good week ~

In "erase" poetry, as in life, I must learn what to delete...and what to not. Never easy choice.

Actually, the ghost of what was lived--or written--remains NMW.

Nice work, Izzy, and fun, too?
