Book Spine Poetry #SOL19

I am participating in the Two Writing Teachers Annual March Slice of Life Story Challenge.  

I typically spend Sunday afternoons in my classroom, finishing up last minute items on my to-do list. This past Sunday I spent some time in my classroom straightening up the classroom library. I always enjoy tucking away out-of-place books, putting them on the right gene shelf and deciding which books should face out. Many times, I know who just finished reading that book, and who wants this book next.

But working in the library and handling titles in the month of March means....

Book Spine Poetry!

a snicker of magic
a tangle of knots
the entirely true story
of an unbelievable fib

life, after
autumn's kiss
frosted kisses
let's pretend we never met

over the moon
chasing space
connect the stars
hello, universe


  1. This truly is an art creating poetry from titles! I definitely want to give this a try!

  2. What a fun way to be productive and creative at the same time. It feels great to tidy things up a bit and make new discoveries. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh my gosh, the second one made me almost spit my iced tea across the table! Too funny--especially when I think about kids' "holiday romances." So fun book spine poetry.

  4. It is always fun to look dat our collection of books and see what titles just seem to fit together to make a poem. Love your examples.

  5. I love book spine poetry. It's playful and clever and creative. And it is great to see all the interesting titles.

  6. Book spine poetry is so fun and creative. I love that you shared several today. These are the slices that make me smile, inspire my creativity, and and connect my love of reading and writing. Thanks for sharing these Leigh Anne!

  7. Leigh Anne, I never got Abundant Autumn Gallery completed and Winter's Embrace is on my to do list. Your book spine poetry would fit. Would you like to offer the pic and poem? Which title fits best in your estimation. I like your book spine poetry touch.
