My Soul Feels Peace
My soul feels lean
flying bird by bird
like I’m falling up
or whistling in the dark
Yet walking with God day by day
under the banner of heaven
I still believe
in peace like a river
The prompt at NaPoWriMo today is to write a “book spine” poem, or what I’ve always heard called a stack poem. They are fun to “write” and do require a little creativity. Someday I’m going to do this in a bookstore or library where the titles to choose from are endless, but for today I pulled from my own little library. (As I was thinking about writing this, it occurred to me that as more and more people read on Kindles and other e-readers, the stack poem may become a thing of the past, but hopefully not for a long, long time.)
Oh, I love this. A couple of my favorite books in that pile.
OK, so I’m gonna have to do something like this. Give me a couple of days.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with. I’ll bet your personal library has some great poetic potential.
Our local library is having a “spine poem” contest this week!
That sounds like fun! Are you going to participate? If you do take pictures.
I plan to participate…and post 🙂
Lovely, and inspirational too!
Thanks for sharing!
