Spine Poetry: Day 30 #SOL18

Today is day 30 of the month long writing challenge sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.

Spine Poetry


My First Day

After the Fall

Planting a Rainbow

Sail Away

Last year during the March slice of life challenge I discovered spine poems.  I thought they were the best thing since sliced bread!  But the idea got lost in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  This morning Terje over at Just for a Month Blogspot reminded me of this fun poetic form.  Not only did she post her spine poem she also included snapshots from each of the highlighted books.  So thank you Terje!  Here are a few of my favorite pages from the books used in my spine poem.

  1. I totally forgot about this form of poetry. Please remind me, do you use the entire title on the spine, or just some of the words? It looks like you used the entire title. Your poem is fun and lighthearted. Thanks for sharing.

  2. One of our gifted/talented teachers challenged her students to a spine poetry assignment. It can be daunting, finding just the right titles! Fun idea, though; I enjoyed helping them in the library that day.
