Book Spine Poem...Again

Thank you Two Writing Teachers for creating this space for me to share my corner of the world.

Once again I find myself sitting at my computer without a slice.  

No words.

Zip.  Nada

Wordlessness seems to have found me a lot this month.  I am not sure why because many people would say that I usually do not a have problem finding words.

I just finished making labels for some new books for my library.  As I sat here and looked at the stack titles on my finding room table, a poem just suddenly appeared.

Hmm...I have a slice.

the only girl in school
finding the worm
some kind of courage


  1. I see these poems all the time and so what to try to write one! Thanks to you, I am inspired to try my hand!! Loved it!!

  2. What a fun way to be inspired! Great spine poem!

  3. You have now inspired me! My students and I talked about participating in NaPoWriMo, and many are ready for a new challenge. I am going to kick off our poetry writing on Friday with book spine poems! Glad you found words for your slice because your slice was just what I was looking for!

  4. I think I will try this with my students. Thanks for reminding me of this form of poetry.

  5. What a perfect poem! I hope you share with some girls who will appreciate it!
