"Day 18 - Book Spine Poetry" for “30 Poems in 30 Days” #NationalPoetryMonth

"Day 18 - Book Spine Poetry" for “30 Poems in 30 Days” #NationalPoetryMonth 

This one is lots of fun but I have had some other demands on my time and I'm just too tired to write this one up. I'm going to go back and find previous years we have done this - copy a line or two and a photo or two and just leave ya' to it! Cheers!!

So, this is an intriguing way to “create” or, actually, “find” a poem by arranging and rearranging a stack of books horizontally that show the title on the book spine into something clever that might be a “poem.” Just like creating any poetry, you get to decide if it will happy or sad, serious or funny or whatever.

Simply start perusing the titles on your bookshelves

and pull out some that have possibilities and start 

stacking them up to see what you might discover. 

Here are a few samples

Elias of Elderberry


Davy Crockett and the King of the River

Winter is Not Forever

The Go-Getter


Never Can Say Good-bye
