Feature and Follow Friday–Book Spine Poetry

hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read
Spine Poetry!
Create a line of poetry with your book spines (take a picture). Not feeling creative? Tell us about your favorite poem.
I’ve been wanting to do this for ages, but I never actually tried it. This week’s activity gave me the perfect excuse!

The children of men
‘til the world ends.
The darkest minds
Things fall apart.
Paradise lost.

I did a second poem because all of my book spine poetry attempts were violent and dark like the first one. I made about 4 more poems, but they all had the same overall the-world-is-ending theme. Some had a little more fire and burns, though, but I didn’t have enough verbs to make it really work as well as I wanted.

I attempted to make one a little more lovely and peaceful:

into the wild
where the sidewalk ends.
The wind in the willows.
The juniper tree.
Many waters.

I’m so excited to see how everyone else’s book spine poetry turned out! I had so much fun doing this and I found I was sad that so many of my really awesome titles were on my Kindle.

Follow me any way and let me know in the comments and I will follow you back.
