Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt…at first I felt resistant to pulling a bunch of books off of the shelf so that I could take pictures of the spine, but then I ended up having so much fun that I created five different book spine poems. I also enjoyed looking at other poets’ book spine poems…there were some hilarious ones and some heartbreakers. It didn’t come as a surprise to me that–given my library of books about yoga, spirituality, and mindfulness– my poems were going to end up being about, well, yoga, spirituality, and mindfulness. If you haven’t created a book spine poem yet, just do it for the heck of it. You might discover that it’s fun for you too. I liked switching around the order of the books to create poems with a completely different feel.
