Fo-gotten

Fog can be considered a type of low-lying cloud, and is heavily influenced by nearby bodies of water, topography, wind conditions, and even human activities. wikipedia
Margo tells us Atlanta is wrapped in fog!

Here are the rules from Sasha to write a Wikem

Heavily influenced by near-by bodies 
Her loneliness grew
They all had friends and plans and parties
Once, she did too
But now like a stranger in fog-stricken dusk
Where she feels more than she sees, she must
Learn to live without what once was
And forget what once she knew

  1. Huh. I find this oddly affecting. Something about the first line coupled with the second and these two:
    But now like a stranger in fog-stricken dusk
    Where she feels more than she sees, she must

    I'm going to have to hie myself over to Sasha's wikem.

  2. I really like this Wikem idea. I tend to go "all-or-nothing" with a found poem, instead of just incorporating a single line or phrase. The whole idea of "nearby bodies" suggests so much and is a choice of phrase that you might never have used without the prompt. I hope to drop by for more of your poetry.
