Book Spine Poetry

Standard
yesterday I went hunting on this blog (www.boomiebol.Wordpress.com) for poems I had written based on a form of poetry I was introduced to via the WordPress writing community
.
.
.
“Book Spine Poetry”… anyone else ever heard of this?!? I’m not sure if it’s a formal poetry form but it works if you align the right books… I had fun creating so many back then.
.
.
.
sharing my first one from 2012… and a new one I created yesterday based on new books/books I am reading.
.
.
.
it is so much fun and can unpack different depths and meaning if you look closely enough…
.
.
.
try your books and hands at some in the comments (using books around you) and I will share some in my stories.
.
.
.
this can also be a way to unblock writer’s block…

happy Tuesday!!!

Hug-Hug (A Mother’s Day Collaboration)

Standard
I am teaming up again with brilliant memory artist and illustrator Miranda Sheh of @breakingegg LLC. to bring heartfelt Mother’s Day gifts to anyone who has lost their moms or moms who have lost their little ones.

Having lost both of our mothers, we understand how difficult the day can be so we decided to bring you a gift that keeps giving. A framed collage poem featuring a customized poem around your story from me and illustration from Miranda.

The aim is that when you put this gift up in your space, you always feel the warmth and love of your loved one.

$35 of each order will be donated to Sidewalk School and Angry Tias and Abuelas working with families who need support at the US/Mexico Border. If you would like to learn more please check out mirandasheh.com
