More Book Spine Poetry SOL 2013: 24 of 31

For the month of March we are challenging ourselves to write a slice every day. 

Slice of Life is sponsored every Tuesday by Stacey and Ruth from Two Writing Teachers.  

Thanks to Elsie's Friday post about book spine poetry, I can't walk by a bookshelf without retrieving interesting titles and engaging in a little wordplay.  I still haven't allowed myself to visit my shelves of picture books, so there may be more book spine poetry to come.

  1. Love the 'personal manifesto', Ramona. I sold many books in my recent estate sale & they were very difficult to say goodbye to. But don't feel too sorry for me, I have brought many along with me too. I think I'm going to have to find some titles to inspire a little book spine poem! Yours are great!

  2. Spine poetry is so much fun - I love your poems!

  3. Holy cow! Creating a haiku with titles? Awesome! It is addictive, looking at titles and considering, how can I use this? Love the manifesto!

  4. Love that you are so talented to create a haiku with book spines. Book spine poetry is great for all ages and experiennces. My 4th grades enjoyed it too!

  5. Wow! Book spine haiku! Love it!

    And what great words to guide your household! Love it more!

  6. So much fun! Love your haiku!
