Book-Stack Contest


Janet Reid, aka The Query Shark is hosting a book-stack contest. An idea she admittedly stole from Tahereh Mafi, author of the up and coming "Shatter Me" (which has been in my TBR on goodreads for months). 

Write a poem using books you have (any) and post a pic. Deadline is tomorrow (Sunday 9/18), noon (additional instructions on Janet's blog). I tried posting this earlier today but blog was being uncooperative about posting my picture in it's correct form *smacks blog* bad blog!

Below is my entry. Best of luck if you enter!





“The Blood of Angels”

Once THE LUCKY ONE.
Now BANISHED
FOREVER,
BEYOND EXILE.

No longer a HOST
MATCHED
In an ANGELS GAME
Of BEAUTIFUL CREATURES
Living in a CITY OF GLASS.

One drop of ELIXIR
And I am cast WITH A VENGEANCE
From the TWILIGHT
Of my SPHERE.

My HALO
CATCHING FIRE
As I tear ACROSS THE UNIVERSE.

Now  DARK VISIONS
Of WILDEFIRE
LINGER
And ECLIPSE
The CRESCENDO
Of the BREAKING DAWN.

I  SHIVER
Under the HUSH-HUSH
Of the NEW MOON as it casts its glow on a
CITY OF BONES;
A DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON
From the BLOOD OF ANGELS.

    Found you through Brenda Drake's blogfest, but was unable to leave a comment for your excerpt. I don't know why. ??? (And now I have Daydream Believer, the song, stuck in my head.) :0) Christy
