Book Spine Poetry

The Eerdmans blog at EerdWord is having a poetry contest. The goal is to create a poem out of the spines of books. Since I have a few books, the project looked like fun, so I put a couple of poems together for submission. Today is the last day to submit and voting will occur next week.

The rules were pretty straightforward: 1) use at least three books, and 2) one of the titles has to be published by Eerdmans.

You can see all the entries by clicking here.

So, here’s my contest entries…

    That’s really cool. I’m going to my shelf right now to give it a whirl!

    And, man, I’ve got a lot of those books.
