What is Seed Pack Poetry for Gardeners?

Erasure Poetry

Erasure poetry is where the words needed for the poem are cut out of the text or the words not needed are erased from the text leaving only the desired words.

Blackout Poetry

In Blackout poetry the words not included in the poem are blacked out with a marker, crayon, or pencil.

Seed Pack Poetry Titles

Poem titles can be ripped from the text or can be chosen from any set of words, in order to lead the reader into the poem or set the subject matter. In seed pack poetry often, the title includes the name of the flower, fruit or vegetable seeds contained in the seed pack. Perhaps the plant’s scientific name is included in the title.
