Show Some Spine
April 15, 2011
I visited a wonderful student-run café this morning at a local elementary school, an inspiring way to start the day—meeting the kids and staff involved in the project, having tea and coffee cake with my friend Linda, and running into fellow writer Heather and her daughter at the café as well. The only downside was having to forgo my Friday morning poetry workout. So instead of the clerihew and other forms that remain on my list this month, I decided to try a little book spine poetry in the time I had, something I’ve seen others across the blogosphere having fun with in recent weeks.
You can see a great gallery of spine poems over at 100 Scope Notes. Below are some short ones I created:
Have fun making your own spine poems! And check out the Poetry Friday roundup today over at Random Noodling–lots of great inspiration to be found.
