Book Spine Haiku

I love book spine poetry and I always looks forward to seeing what people come up with in the now traditional Bout of Books challenge. Hosted by bookgoonie, today's challenge goes one step further and we have to form our books into a haiku. I spent ages rummaging around for a two syllable title to finish it off and the final line was a bit of a cheat, but here it is:

Faithless, blameless, lost
Girl meets boy where three roads meet
Under the same stars


  1. Karin Slaughter is just great to use in these things :)

    I love your poem!

  2. It makes a lovely haiku! What a clever and novel idea to use book spines :)

  3. I love yours and I hate mine. True story!

    Here's my Bout of Books post.

  4. Aww...yours is romantic. Great job. I looked like a total goob chin counting my syllables trying to fit & fit mood.

  5. Wow, a fabulous haiku! Very romantic and gripping, I kind of want to know more about the boy and the girl. :)

  6. Okay, your haiku tramples my efforts into the dust! *bows deeply before the new Mistress of Book Spine Poetry*
