Book Spine Poetry

Resparking the habit of frequent poem-writing this National Poetry Month, I've been putting the poetry prompts from both Poetic Asides and into my hopper.Today's NaPoWriMo offering was too good to resist: Book spine poems! Lauren and Mirabai did some, too. The family that poems together, shows 'em together.

I like the use of refrain. I'm pretty pleased with this one:


Lauren had similar thoughts, using two books I was planning to use. We tend to think alike and arrive at the same places at the same time. It's uncanny.

Mirabai's sweet poem:
An Acceptable Time
Teach Yourself to Dream
All the World

What will you come up with?


  1. Hello Ari family... I love this post... only getting to see it WAY (is that One Way?) late. (Like a year late! -lol) I am still trying to figure out how to get an email when you post new blog posts here on OWTA ~ FWP!

    I love Mirabai's book poem... wow! And I also love the refrain of the first one!
