book spine poetry: hoping for something better

Speaking of poetry, have you heard of  book spine poetry? My friend Kath introduced me to the concept. You can see some examples here.

Just for fun, here's my very own book spine poem (the first book is the heading). How many of the titles and authors do you recognize?

hoping for something better

Until the day break
The scent of water
The hollow hills
The endless steppe
The remains of the day
The last battle
Cry, the beloved country
How long, O Lord?
Till we have faces.

Create your own book spine poem, send a picture to my email address, and you might see it on this blog. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

If you're a blogger, here's a challenge. I'm starting a meme. Here are the rules (free free to ignore them):

  • Create a book spine poem (examples here).
  • Take a picture.
  • Post it on your blog.
  • Link back to this post.
  • Tag another blogger, or two, or ten.

I'm tagging my poetry and/or book loving friends
Ali, NicoleMeredithCathyWendySusGordoMaddiLeila and Bek.

Have fun!
