Poetry Blogfest Day 1

Hello readers and welcome to day one of my poetry blogfest in support of my first book, a poetry collection! It's titled A TO Z POETRY and comes out Sept 19, 2013!

Today's challenge is Spine Poetry: use the spines of your stack of books to make poetry.

Here is an example (:
Every soul a star
cuz girls in pants
are my sister's keeper
keeping faith
in more than nineteen minutes. 

And another (:
Missing since Monday
The sisterhood of the traveling pants 
my Habibi 
so farewell to Manzanar 
in full tilt.

Also, four of my favorite poems will be picked at the end of the blogfest/this week and given a special feature in my poetry collection (with your permission of publication, of course)! Enjoy!

P.S. If you haven't already add your blog to the linky list. Thanks!

Thanks for this poetry challenge and good luck with your book release! If you would like to do a guest post on my blog during the release I would be happy to have you! Also you should get in touch with Nicole @Riverand when your book is released to do an author interview at Story Dam. I am very excited for you and I can't wait to read your book!

Oh, how I love this!! I just finished collecting & writing my poem. I decided to work on a second series this week as well in honor of your poetry challenge....

Merican Portrait... focusing on a slice of life in Downtown Bakersfield when I take my daughter to school each day. :~)

Hello Fida. I am so impressed at writing poetry using book spines. How creative! Even I might manage this!
