Book Spine Poetry for Strange Times

April is National Poetry Month and spurred on by a recent post by Bookish Beck, I thought I would indulge in some Book Spine Poetry!

It’s been a while since I did this on the blog but it can get a bit addictive once you get going! I’ve decided to use the book at the top of each pile as the title and I’ve taken a few liberties with the punctuation. You’ll see that both are quite heavily influenced by our current predicament!

Book Spine 1

 

Notes From An Apocolypse

This changes everything.

Days without end

Clock without hands

we are not in the world.

Some rain must fall.

Retreat to innocence,

Smile.

Still, life.

Book Spine 2

You Must Remember This

The heavens,

flights,

the language of birds.

All the days and nights

lit up inside.

The wild laughter,

this is happiness.

 

Anyone else fancy having a go? Naomi over at Consumed by Ink has just posted some great ones – check them out!

  1. Love these, Cathy! I’m glad book spine poetry is back. I just posted some yesterday! I especially like the colours of the second poem, and the fact that they end in smiles and happiness. 🙂

Of Books and Reading

Hmmm so I am the Hungry Reader. The one who reads. The one who is constantly reading or wanting to read constantly. This blog is all about the books I have read, the ones that I am reading and gems that I plan to read in the future or whenever it arrives.

a hot cup of pleasure

There is nothing more satisfying than reading a book while sipping a hot cup of tea.

A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say. – Italo Calvino
