Quinn McDonald is a writer, an artist and a creativity coach. I really like her blog and her new book new book raw Art Journaling. Her post today had to do with creating poetry found from the spines of books. She made the suggestion to go to our book shelves and look at the spines of books and make poetry. I did it this evening. This is what I found and little poems I created.
The Sun the Moon and the Stars
Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Echo Maker
Traveling Mercies, Some Thoughts on Faith
tho I think it gives me more of a chuckle if I read or write it like this: Traveling Mercies
Some Thoughts on Faith
I have faith, but this seems to remind me that even when I am hurting, I need to remind myself that I need to laugh more. And we all know the benefits of laughter.
On the Road with the Archangel
The Color of Water
or rewritten like this: Godmother
on the road with the archangel,
the color of water.
I can see using these in words in my art work. They create some interesting images and color in my mind. I'm glad I did this. It reminds me to get back to using my poetry in my art work. Thanks, Quinn.
Thanks for stopping by.
