Love-A-Thon Mini Challenge: Book Spine Poetry

The Love-a-Thon is an event where we can share our love for our fellow book bloggers! The event is hosted by Alexa at Alexa Loves Books, Cee at The Novel Hermit, Hazel at Stay Bookish, and Mel at The Daily Prophecy.

I love book spine poetry so much so I had to do this mini challenge! Here’s my poem:

Here’s the poem:

This shattered world:
a thousand pieces of you uprooted,
The burning sky in a handful of dust,
snow like ashes.
All these things I’ve done

I always have so much fun with these poems! I’d love to see yours so leave me a comment and I’ll try to stop by and read your book spine poetry!

    Wow, I love it! Especially these two lines: "The burning sky in a handful of dust, snow like ashes." they go together so well.

    Is that 'All These Things I've Done' by Gabrielle Zevin I see? Have you read it yet? I loved it!

    I have yet to read Uprooted but it's on my TBR (a list that is growing by the hour!)

    Great poem!

    Andrea, this is SO good! I freaking love the opening of your poem ("This shattered world: a thousand pieces of you uprooted") because it's so dramatic. Lovely job!

    WHOA, this is a powerful poem. Really love these lines: "a thousand pieces of you uprooted" & "The burning sky in a handful of dust,/ snow like ashes." And the ending, what a beautiful ending!
