SOL 17: Book Spine Poetry

I’ve been thinking about poetry today. I’ve been noticing images and words, playing with different combinations, following ideas, sometimes to dead ends. Creating book spine poems sometimes helps me get “unstuck” with my own ideas. Here are a few that emerged today.

Small wonder
Spirals in time
Gift from the sea

Look! Look! Look!
Flutter & hum.
Words with Wings

The comet seekers,
knocking on heaven’s door:
finding wonders.

  1. Book spine haiku. This is so much harder than it looks. I’m headed to my stacks to try this. My favorite is the words with wings. I’ve always loved that title.
