It’s day six of Rachel at Beauty and the Bookshelf’s GUOTSBE! And I’m actually posting this on the correct day, yay! In honor of World Poetry Day and being a dabbler of writing poetry myself, I chose this prompt. Plus, I would be way too awkward in front of a camera.
Book Spine Poetry prompt: It’s World Poetry Day! I don’t know about you, but poetry really isn’t my forte and I’m not its biggest fan. But book spine poetry? I can dig that. All you have to do is take titles of books–books spines!–and make them into a poem (or, oh my gosh, go even further and dissect a book and make sentences into a poem, you super creative overachiever, you).
So, here it is, my Book Spine Poem:
A darker shade of magic
A certain slant of light
Crown of midnight
Touch the dark
Pack up the moon
Curse the dawn
The golden city
Heir of fire
Not too bad, if I do say so myself. I have to say, this is was easy if only because I have a lot of Urban Fantasy books with “dark” titles and they all seem to fit well together.
Did you create your own poem of book spines? Do you write poetry?
