Poetry Stretch Results - Centos

It appears my second stretch was a bit of a challenge. I promise to go easy on you next week.
Only Terrell at Alone on a Limb was brave enough to give this one a try. Check out his cento entitled A Breath of Wind.
Would you like to try your own cento? Read the rules and my example here. Then leave me a comment about your poem and I'll include it on the list.


  1. Tricia,

    This week's was a real poetry s-t-r-e-t-c-h. Maybe not too hard to do--but it would certainly be time consuming to locate different lines of poetry that could meld into a unified piece. I had never heard of a cento before.

  2. Hi Elaine,
    Yes, this is a challenging form. I have been keeping a journal of lines and favorite poems for a long time, so it was relatively easy for me cobble something together, though I'm not sure how much sense it makes!
