SUNDAY FUN: SHELFIE FOUND POEMS

Posted on April 05 2020

Today’s stay-at-home Sunday fun - make a found poem using the titles of books on your shelf. It’s oddly addictive and a great prompt for National Poetry Writing Month #napowrimo. Here’s my abstract attempt at a lockdown book spine poem:


Love in the time of cholera
Here is where we meet
The new life
Down the rabbit hole
The captive mind
The sound of waves
Behind the wall
Invisible cities
Time was soft there
The grass is singing
Of love and other demons
Life is elsewhere
Tomorrow in the battle think of me
