Found poetry challenge and giveaway

It has been such a long time since I have done a giveaway, but here we go, time for some fun, but you have a role to play in this. It's not a free ride. Your entry will be your words..... 




Thou hath love. 
Shall we part?
No!
We fly and seek Heaven
Our sorrows wither.

I have been working on some new zentangle pieces utilising pages from Shakespeare's complete works. You can see more examples of what I have done here.
Desperate honesty hides my oath,
my beloved friend.
Let time deliver her design.
What knowledge would your spirit need
for flight?

So, what I was thinking was, I would post a couple of  'virgin' pages, and you could come up with your own found poetry. We will do a bit of a vote, or maybe a random draw, and I will then add the art to your own Found Poetry page, and mail it to you. 

What do you think about that?

worthy lady,
impose your pleasure
to thou ignorant valentine.
My soul loved thy heart,
and would desire
thy company.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
You will need to upload the following pages from this post (permission granted), find your "poetry" - and I am very loose about the poetry - it doesnt need to rhyme (mine dont), just words that , in your mind, make some kind of sense. You can underline, circle, black out redundant words, whatever you like.
Once complete, email the file back to me, and I will post all the entries here in one post  (permission assumed). You can post to your own blog if you have one.
It would be useful if you could send me your poetry written out as you intend it to be read, with punctuation etc.


email your found poetry to playcentrejo(at)gmail(dot)com
If for some reason you cant download your favourite page, email me and I will send to you :) just let me know which page number you would like.
I am going to  set a deadline of 31st March to have your pieces back to me, and then we will post and decide.... I do hope some of you will participate.

 I have spirit.
I know peace.
Pity is a burden to endure.
Silence and truths serve all I have.
My intergrity
leaves me naked.
Farewell...

Saw the challenge on FB. Jo, such a fun. I'll try, even English is not my language :)
Your drawings are always fabulous. Sometimes I see them on Flickr, sometimes on FB.

Hi, Lianne here from etsy-I had never heard of found poetry before i 'found' you :). I just added one of your items to my 'get found' treasury and my curiosity naturally lead me here! So I have now lost 2 hrs of my day finding poetry which was great fun, thanks x
