Hey ho – I was pondering re-posting an old work and was looking back at past October poems to see what I could unearth, when I came across an old dVerse prompt response from October 2013. I remember writing this, and having great fun, using a discarded newspaper I liberated from the train on my journey home from work!

So, I decided to have another go at flarfing, this time using a copy of the freebie local community magazine, Preston Pages, that hits the doormat every month. Again, all rather random, but that’s the fun. And it works (I think!).

Please do head on over to dVerse to find out what others have offered in this free reign Thursday prompt. I’m sure there will be some surprises for you πŸ™‚

  1. Brilliant and thus far the best poem I’ve ever read. πŸ™‚
    If I remember correctly I wanted to introduce ‘Flaf poetry’ to dVerse at one time.
    It never got mentioned or they forgot about it.

    I love this poem a lot. My favorite. πŸ™‚

  2. Like Mish, I am new to this – but intrigued with what you achieved… Thanks for stirring me in this area… With Best Wishes Scott

  3. Interesting. I must have missed the flarfing post in 2013. I may have to go back and check it out for a future OLN. This was fun, though I didn’t understand it one bit. And I suppose that’s the point.

  4. I adore Found Poetry — have only been with dVerse for a little over a year and had not heard the term “flarfing.” ….using another f word — FUN! πŸ™‚
