Book Spine Poem 1

I was casting around for an idea for today’s poem for National Poetry Writing Month and came across a book spine poem by Chris Galvin. You can read hers here.

I loved this idea and thought I would try my own and following Chris’s lead I looked around my bookshelves and found three book titles that seemed to work together as a haiku (well to me anyway).

From earth to beyond the sky
dwarves and jesters in art,
the magic mountain

with humble thanks to Evelyn Wolfson, Erica Tietze-Conrat and Thomas Mann.
