April is Poetry Month, and one of the women in my writing group was talking about the public library promoting book spine poetry this month as a fun activity. I have a decent-sized library so I decided to see what I could do with books from my shelves.
Without spending a great amount of time on the activity, I entertained myself creating these poems. A side benefit was the necessity to dig through my library and discover books I had forgotten.
Have you tried book spine poetry, or is it too silly for you? It's kind of addicting, looking for interconnections between titles. I have a picture or a story in my mind for each of these. Perhaps it's just word play, but fun nonetheless.
In other Highland Cottage news, most of our plants survived our Deep South February "snowmageddon" and cold temperatures that I wrote about in my last post. Actually plants may have had an easier time dealing with the unprecedented events of the cold spell than people did.
Below are a few photos from our front yard today. We appreciate spring beauty more than ever this year.

Thanks for the stopping to visit my Highland Cottage. It's spring in southern tornado alley, so we are watching storms heading our way tonight....April showers!
