It’s been a while since I made a book spine poem (aka bookmash). This one is overdue, but thanks to Edna O’Brien it’s also a month early:
Listening to the Wind
listening to the wind,
the songs of trees, wild
on your doorstep,
Going home one by one
in the darkness.
Thanks to the authors: Tim Robinson, David George Haskell, Edna O’Brien, Kazuo Ishiguro, Heather Greer, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Deirdre Madden; and to Nina Katchadourian.
Edna O’Brien and Deirdre Madden have both featured a few times on Sentence first, including in previous bookmashes. Heather Greer’s book, a beautifully illustrated guide to the moths and butterflies of Connemara, is one I did some editing on, years ago.
Have you made a book spine poem yet?
