My poem today is about a girl discovering a fantastical world she never thought she'd experience -- a girl who has learned to fly. Where she learned this, whether it was a gift bestowed in a fairy tale, just what exactly her backstory is, is completely open to your own interpretation (and is half the fun!); check it out below and let me know your thoughts, or even your own book spine poems, in the comments.
Hope you enjoy!
The summer I learned to fly —
the space between, between the sea and the sky —
Across the great barrier, the sky is everywhere:
a million suns glow, shine...
Summer and bird,
the girl who could fly.
