Here’s a new book spine poem (aka bookmash). For the uninitiated: This is a game where you make a visual poem from the spines of books on your shelf.
Wild flowers, the wild places,
The birds of the innocent wood –
The secret place on the black hill,
Half a life still life,
The living mountain
Changing my mind.
Thank you to the authors: Richard Fitter, Robert Macfarlane, Deirdre Madden, Tana French, Bruce Chatwin, V.S. Naipaul, A.S. Byatt, Nan Shepherd, and Zadie Smith; and to Nina Katchadourian. (Links point to earlier posts featuring the authors, including more book spine poems.)

You’ve done it again. Simple yet profound. Love it!
Glad you like it!
