Poetry and Images

This is a sample project demonstrating how students can use various images on Google Cultural Institute as the basis for writing their own original poetry. Students can create a series of interrelated poems or discrete poems. They give their project (their collection of images and poems) a title and provide a general explanation of process and motivation in this space. Hello there!

Haiku: Evening Cool air settles low Passion goes into hiding A lazy sun sleeps
Pantoum Poem: A Heavy End Across all television screens, the same image is repeated. History meets history. Like ants marching in and out of their hidden fortress. Shuffling our feet out of life. History meets history. Speaking rhetoric and rhymes with pursed lips and bared teeth. Shuffling our feet out of life. Bodies burst through the shadows of shame and mingle old regrets with new mistakes. Speaking rhetoric and rhymes with pursed lips and bared teeth. The rough skin on the soles of our feet recall lighter loads. Bodies burst through the shadows of shame and mingle old regrets with new mistakes. Sending smoke signals for a cacophony of hammers, horns, and screams. The rough skin on the soles of our feet recall lighter loads. Blinding lights have faded into pitying glows. Sending smoke signals for a cacophony of hammers, horns, and screams. We lost the truth along with our marbles. Blinding lights have faded into pitying glows. Searching for meaning but settling for pretty murmurs. We lost the truth along with our marbles. We stumble home. Searching for meaning but settling for pretty murmurs. Cultures dance along the horizon, wearing eclectic masks to hide their same skin, same face, same nose. We stumble home. A chorus stirs and mimes ancient verse as animal skin drums betray modern beats. Cultures dance along the horizon, wearing eclectic masks to hide their same skin, same face, same nose. The tribes stalk and sway. A chorus stirs and mimes ancient verse as animal skin drums betray modern beats. A heavy end to a delicate start.
Found Poem Remix: The Caffeinated Lazy Loner’s Credo Fuck Hard Work coffee is what I want weird is your superpower You’re not actually passionate, you’re just very lazy Never embrace industrious people the universe says: be nice Beauty thinks: Fuck. Talent harmony goes to jail I’m not saying don’t work hard BUT decrease your energy basically you should Never turn down limited editions someone called you & said “This motherfucker...” stray from people Work like me
