Noticing the blessings along the Journey FGC #23

A journey honours the realisation
of changes made
Never forget your dreams
Prepare for your passion
Face day and night
Share like the luckiest people
You want to rebuild
choose your way.

A solid foundation
so beautiful
is ahead.


This was written in response to Write Anything's Form and Genre Challenge ,  FGC #23 Found Poem.

This is a new format to me. I found a definition on Creative Writing Now  which best describes this genre. "A found poem uses language from non-poetic contexts and turns it into poetry. Think of a collage -- visual artists take scraps of newspaper, cloth, feathers, bottle caps, and create magic."

I flicked through the pages of "Road Ahead" - a Motoring Magazine focusing on cars, engines and motoring holidays, cutting out headings as they struck me. Collating it, I asked for personal guidance in my life's journey - having struck some road blocks and challenges.... and these words strung together; giving me a meaningful message. 

I've taken a photo of my collage - and also written it for clarity.
