Magnets That Reveal The Poet Within.

Dave here... It's time to get back on this MagPo blog horse and ride again! I'm going to start things with this image, taken at The Whitney Museum in NYC while I was hold for two hours with Sun Country Airlines, stuck there, as it turned out, for an extra three days (there are worse places to get stranded, eh?) because a snow storm shut down all three airports the day this was taken. I was there for the New York Now trade show (used to be called The New York Gift Show), which went quite well for Magnetic Poetry... we seem to be experiencing a bit of a renaissance. So, thank you. And may the muse of the magnets be with you!

I recently got a couple of tiny vases, and decided to bring them into the office and fill them with found plants and flowers. These cockleburs and grass are from next to the railroad tracks that run past our building.

Half the fun of Magnetic Poetry comes from letting the muse of the magnets have its way with you. In other words, I think it's a mistake to set out with your poetic goal too precise. If you've got a line in mind that you like, you should by all means write it down; you're probably not going to find those exact words in any Magnetic Poetry Kit. But if you've got an open heart and a sense of adventure, the magnets can lead you to some very surprising and beautiful and unexpectedly heart-wrenching places. Here's a poem I just made by just picking a few tiles out of the box that seemed to resonate today. I stuck them on my board and set out to fill the gaps and wound up with this, a tiny poem that really transports me to a certain powerful spot at the moment.
