Day 19 - Book Spine Poetry" for “30 Poems in 30 Days” #NationalPoetryMonth


This one is lots of fun. It's 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.

This is a FUN ONE to post on your own FB page and see how many of your friends want to create some Spine Poetry as well. Have fun! Cheers!!

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
Behind the Scenes


Giant Steps
A Man, a Can, and a Plan,
Feeding a Giant
Big in Japan
Raw Power!
