Mini Challenge: Book Spine Poetry (Love-a-Thon)

loveathon

Love-a-Thone fun continues.
(As you probably know by now, Love-a-Thon is an event hosted by four amazing bloggers:Β Alexa from Alexa Loves Books, Cee from The Novel Hermit, Hazel from Stay Bookish and Mel from The Daily Prophecy.)

In this challenge, we are encouraged to wake up a poet in us, and try our best to do a poet using book spines.

To be perfectly honest with you, this challenge is what I was looking the most for when signing up for this year’s Love-a-Thon.
I am so looking forward to see what other bloggers will come up with.

Making poets using book spines was a bit challenging for me because most of the books I own are translated into Croatian (aka croatian edition) and when I came up with a verse I tought would fit right, I realised the book with the title I’m looking for is in croatian edition, so I couldn’t use it.

In the end, I came up with three poems (for which I’ll say are written in “free verse” form).

Here they are:

True Love

my_true_love_doradjeno

My true love gave to me
The fiery heart,
A wedding night.
Everbound.

The Husband Hunt

book_poetry_girls_doradjeno

All the single ladies
fire study
where have all the boys gone.

…and personally my favorite poem:

Pieces of myself

favorite_doradjeno

What’s left of me:
Someone else’s life,
The audacity of hope;
No place to hide.

Do you like any of these poems?
If you do, which one?

  2. I really like these poems! My favorite has to be the last one, but the Husband Hunt was great too! Love “all the single ladies” line and the end “where have all the boys gone”! πŸ™‚
