Book Spine Poetry, Take Two

I had so much fun with the last round of book spine poetry, and so many leftover ideas, that I just had to give it another shot. The themes this time include travel, arson, astronomy, natural history and my own little romance. Let me know what you think.

 

The art of travel

 

The violet hour,

The detour:

Turn left at the pub,

Road ends

On Chesil Beach.

The accidental tourist

Thinks…

This must be the place.

Casualties

 

How to set a fire and why:

Out of sheer rage.

An exclusive love;

All passion spent.

Red sky at night:

The blazing world

Scarlet and black.

Home is burning –

Everything must change.

The celestials

 

Stargazing

 

The night of the comet

Crossing the moon

 

Cloud atlas

Measuring the world

 

Heaven’s coast

The collector

 

An obsession with butterflies

Four wings and a prayer

 

A buzz in the meadow

The secret life of bees

 

The wonder,

The abundance –

 

Telling the story

Bird by bird

 

Tracing the way

Adventure lit their star.

Dedicated to my husband; our ninth anniversary is coming up in just over two weeks.

 

Abroad

 

England, England –

Small island,

Small world.

Happenstance:

Over here

About a boy.

Love in a cold climate:

Beautiful fools

(The good guy,

American wife)

A quiet life.
