Guys, spine poems are awesome. Seriously. Even more awesome is to stand in front of all those books on your shelves/in library/in bookshop and try putting one (or more) together. Especially, when there is a given theme.
Kimberly over at Bookmark to Blog is hosting a once-a-month event called Spine Speak. There are themes! Other participants! Prizes! Oh, joy. You can check out more detailed information from Bookmark to Blog, but basically, us lovely bloggers need to put together a spine poem consisting of at least five titles and matching the monthly theme.
This month's theme - April Showers Bring May Flowers. I struggled, because most of the titles on my bookshelf are dark/odd/in Estonian. But here is the poem I came up with, which I think represents at least a bit those springy moods and awakening of the earth. It is possible I completely missed the mark, but at least I had fun!
The Pillars of the Earth -
Tree and Leaf, the Given Day, a Lullaby.
Never Let Me Go
as we Dance Dance Dance
to the Gardens of the Moon.
Books that I used:
Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth
J.R.R. Tolkien, Tree and Leaf
Dennis Lehane, The Given Day
Chuck Palahniuk, Lullaby
Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go
Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance
Steven Erikson, Gardens of the Moon
