Picture Poetry
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Picture poetry, also known as concrete or graphic poetry, was born in the 1950's. Eugen Gomringer from Switzerland, Öyvind Fahlström of Sweden, and Decio Pignatari from Brazil are all considered to be creators of this modern form of poetry. Picture poems are fun to create! They are images (pictures) created out of words and punctuation marks-drawings made of words.
 
2     Picture poetry can be simple or complex. How detailed your picture turns out is up to you! You don't have to worry about rhyme, rhythm, or meter. If you are an artist, this type of poetry was made for you!
 
3     One of the easiest picture poems to create is a tree poem. See the poem below.
