Book Spine Poetry

The Ottawa Public Library is holding a contest called 'Poetry on spines'. They are encouraging people to send in photos of book spines arranged so as to form poetry.

With my background as a hungry poet, and since we our home holds at least 600 books, this seemed like a project made just for me.

So I've been browsing our book shelves and playing with titles. Here are some that I've come up with so far. (And my fabulous friend Laurene has sent me one of hers too.)

The Time of the Angels
Fall On Your Knees
Immovable Wisdom

I am a Cat
A Jest of God
Who do you think you are?

Will you take me as I am?
Sense and Sensibility
Secrets and Lies
Light in August
Dark Age Ahead
The Long Winter

Lost Antartica
Reinventing Your Life
Among Penguins
-by Laurene Dong
