Witchy Weekends: Book Spine Poetry

I’m decorating my house for Hallowe’en today, and every year I do a fun mantel which includes some book spine poetry. I try to mix it up each year with different poems. Here are this season’s offerings:

the kingmaker’s daughter / drinking coffee elsewhere / a discovery of witches

 

And in honor of all the actual witches working in service each month in the protection of our country with their bindings:

four sisters, all queens / dime store magic / wicked / chocolat / reason for hope

 

And one more poem, just because it’s up on my mantel, even though it doesn’t have anything to do with witches:

lost / in the land of men / lonely werewolf girl / one hundred years of solitude

 

 

‘Tis the season.

The Triumphant Return of Witchy Weekends

Is this you?

Because if it is, then you’re like me. I can hardly wait for October 1st to start celebrating the Hallowe’en season. Sure, I technically start the last week or so of September by collecting decorations and thinking about costumes, but on the 1st things get kicked into high gear.

Sometimes on my blog — as any of you who have been reading for a while will know — I run series. And one which has been fun in the past is Witchy Weekends in October. So we’re going to try it again this year.

Today please enjoy this bonus earworm from Bloomfield, Kooper, and Stills. You can just click play and let it run in the background while you do other stuff since this one is only audio, no video. It’s iconic.
