Three months of daily text 2
A recurring format in my daily text is to cut haikus (three lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables) from book pages. Instead of simply finding three separate lines of the appropriate length and pasting them down, this kind of poem is more difficult.
It's more difficult to find, because the three lines have to appear in their proper order. And it's more difficult to paste up, because you have to whip out the X-acto knife and cut all the irrelevant words away, leaving just the surrounding page and the words of the poem.
I spent a lot more time on each one then, but it feels familiar to go back to this method every now and then in my daily art.
