Three little birds pitch on my doorstep.
I keep them in a jar
because
nothing I have is truly mine.

I am only the lonely,
waiting for it to come back to me.
NEW PROJECT. :la:

One of my favorite things in the creative process is coming up with a title. A quick browse of dA proves I'm not the only one - people come up with some strange and often beautiful titles for their work. Thus, my new project is born: each line of this poem is the title of a work I found here on deviantART. A type of Found Poetry, but with some community mindedness :XD:

RULES

1. Each line must be the title of a work found somewhere on deviantART. Any type of art goes.
2. Minor modification is allowed (adding small words such as and, or, but, with, I, you/ changing the tense (keep to kept, wait to waiting).
3. BUT, you can't just remove/insert a word altogether.
4. A single line can only be modified once.
5. Modification of punctuation and/or capitalization doesn't count.
6. YOU MUST LINK ALL THE PIECES USED :stare:
7. And please notify the artists that you have used their titles :)
8. Your own title must either be of another dA piece OR a title someone else could use for their own found poem. The stranger the better.

Oohh...I shall have to try this sometime soon. Love the idea, and I agree. I have seen some amazing titles, to the point that I like the title better than the art. :)

How do you tend to put it together? Search a topic, then use title names from that? Or random deviations?

I usually stitch a few together and extrapolate from there. If I need a specific word, I have to go hunting for it.

Well, birds fly away. If you let one go, there's no guarantee that it will ever come back to you. You can only wait for it to come back. Make that as metaphorical as you like :XD:

That's why the narrator keeps them in a jar in the first place :)

You've crafted a wonderful combinations of titles (and having written two of these now, I know how difficult it is to find pieces that fit together) I am in awe.

AAAAAAH this is such an awesome project idea! I think I'm going to try doing one of these for :iconglory-be-project: today!

Also, this is LOVELY--I'd never have known, if I hadn't read your artists' comments, that they were all titles. Nice!

EVERYONE MUST TRY :stare: I have a folder in my faves full of cool titles if you need some help getting started :D

I'm really happy with how this one came out. Hopefully the rest will continue the trend.
