For the BPC, the rules are very simple: create a poem based on book from your bookshelf. The topic is open, the form is open, the only restriction is that the books must come from your own shelf. In addition to creating some amazing poetry, you may also find something new to read!
Once you've created your poem, take a picture and upload it to your website, blog, Facebook page, Instagram, whatever, and then leave the link in the Mister Linky box at the bottom of this post.
And now, my short poem about adultery:
The other woman 'tis
stepping on the cracks beyond good and evil.
The day awaits a very easy death
That others may live.
- The Other Woman, Jane Green
- 'Tis, Frank McCourt
- Stepping on the Cracks, Mary Downing Hahn
- Beyond Good and Evil, Friedrich Nietzsche
- The Day Awaits, Notre Dame Press
- A Very Easy Death, Simone de Beauvoir
- That Others May Live, Jack Brehm and Pete Nelson
UPDATE: I found the post from Brain Pickings that inspired this series. They have curated four volumes thus far; be sweet and visit the other three: "Get Smarter," "New York," and "Music."
