NPM 2021 - Found Poem 22

Today's found poem is another zentangle poem. Kat Apel does a really nice job describing them on her site. This is similar to blackout poetry, though doodles and lines are used to block and frame the words.

This poem was made from page 21 of Audubon's Birds of America published by The MacMillan Company in 1950. The introduction and descriptive captions were written by Ludlow Griscom. 

This seemed like an appropriate poem to share on Earth Day.
Here is a closeup of the page.
On the Brink

multitudes of wonders

in a lifetime
unconscious victims of
circumstances unfavorable

man does harm
for worse
without stopping
to think

  1. These are SO beautiful - I just feel like I can't cut up books but have a couple of literary magazines I should try this with...

    1. I have that angst about books too. I got this one at a yard sale. It's mostly bird images, which I won't touch, but the text wasn't particularly meaningful to me.

  2. I agree with Tanita. Your zentangles are beautiful, but this one makes my heart hurt.
