Tangling Titles


a slice of Pi –
embracing the WIDE sky,
honoring the self



SLAM; nerve?

biocentrism … no longer a secret,

an invisible sign of my own –

BE different,

Ada, (The Enchantress of Numbers)



the particular,


of lemon cake


too LOUD,

too b-r-i-g-h-t!

too fast 

too tight


A fabulous prompt by Samuel Peralta  at dVerse! I had hoped to spend some more time on this because I found it utterly fascinating but alas, the day calls and I must be off. I will leave you with these.

    hey i am all for being different…and ultimately honoring yourself, that will get you far….each of these turned out really cool…

  2. Wonderful and all so different… Love how your brought in Ada at the end of the second poem… and the lemon cake god me all intrigued.

    • Thank you Björn! I have an eclectic book collection I only pulled from the ones close to my desk – if I had more time on this day I would have ventured to my other bookshelves to see what I could create. (smile) Ada, is one of my favorite woman in history if I can mix her into something I will. I had fun with that last poem … indeed.

  6. Rowan Taw says:

    A great series of spine poems.

    Very creative response(s)!

  8. Tony Maude says:

    The first one sounds so true to being a poet; the second is a very necessary corrective to our tendency to try to be what we’re not and to conform to others’ expectations of us; and the third …
    Is there really a book called The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake?

    Great set of stacks here! Love how you put it all together.

    I absolutely love this!! 😀

  11. You may have not had the time you wanted to spend on this, but this shows how powerful and personal the technique can be! You’ve managed to pull off three poems, with very different thematic directions, and also instill in each your own emphasis and personality. Well done! …and I can’t wait to see what else you might come up with in this vein.

    • Thank you Samuel! I plan on working with this technique more I appreciate you sharing it with us. I had never heard of it. I find it mentally challenging and fun at the same time.
