Written for:  Poetic Asides #411 – Write an information poem.  The poem could be about delivering information, sifting through information, or receiving information. But remember: Not all information is created equal. And not all of it is reliable. And some of it is hiding in unlikely places, like the mouths of children and observations in nature.

Heard from a little bird
this morning, that red
is in reality, blue.
I never knew. Russia
has moved to the mid-east,
North Korea is inviting
everyone to a feast. United
Nations has disbanded due to
lack of interest. Anybody’s
guess what we will learn next.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
