jornales

for a moment of joy or moments no one pays for, i give myself a ‘jornal’. this makes me rich. try it.

book spine haiku…

1.

then and now…

the little prince

under the sea wind

 

2.

far to go–

the concubine

when the wells run dry

 

3.

the piano–

basil and the pygmy cats

joy luck club

 

4.

the republic–

postcards

of mice and men

 

5.

war and peace

as I lay dying…

metamorphosis

 

6.

grapes of wrath

the god of small things

barn burning

 

7.

no exit

love in the time of cholera

a midsummer night’s dream

 

8.

swamp angel

death of a salesman

paradise lost

 

9.

steppenwolf

the unbearable lightness of being–

leaf storm

 

10.

talking horse–

the importance of being earnest

a new life

 

11.

demian–

strange news from another star

beneath the wheel

 

12.

wind in the willows

crisis pages in a diary–

if the war goes on
