One of my favourite places to visit on the interwebs is Brain Pickings. Whether your thang is music, art, literature, philosophy or science, there is something there to tickle your brain cells. A regular feature is book spine poetry. It has been 20 years or more since I last made any serious attempt at writing poetry (and even then, I preferred to think of them as “song lyrics”!) but I thought that this was something I could have a go at, especially as it would involve taking pictures of piles of books – always a good thing 🙂
Here’s my first book spine poem:
Together under one roof –
the artful bird,
All families are psychotic.
And a slightly more profound attempt:
Taking the leap,
against the grain.
Real happiness –
the heart of the revolution.
If only I hadn’t recently given 50% of my book collection away 😉
