Important Notice!!! We are currently dealing with a serious health crisis involving David. Computer time and blogging will be taking a backseat until we can get this situation under control and, hopefully, save his leg. Please bear with us as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for any prayers that you can offer up.

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up, please subscribe to his YouTube channel. That would really make his day! The link is at the bottom of all of my posts.

Thank you and Merry Christmas to all of you!

Dada Poetry

I was doing some research on various poem styles this evening and came across one that I've never heard of. It is called "Dada". I have heard of Dada art, but had never heard the term in regards to poetry. It is a poem that makes no sense at all, like someone took the words of a poem and poured them out of a bucket to land where they may.

I came across a website that has a Dada generator. You put a few lines (at least eight words) into the generator, and it spits them back out to you in a Dada-styled mess of words. I have been having fun making a mess of a few phrases and then copying the resulting "poem" back into the generator to further mix things up.

My original two sentences:

I will forgive you when I stop hurting. I will stop hurting when I can forgive you.

The resulting Dada:

when hurting. I when can
will forgive stop hurting. I
I forgive I forgive you.
you I stop I will
will stop I will hurting
I when I hurting. I

Sometimes I feel as confused as these Dadas are!

Here's the link in case you'd like to have a little fun with this. Dada Generator
