Whisperings Book Cover Poll

When deciding what I wanted my book cover to be for my poetry collection, I knew that it had to be personal.  It needed to speak to me, to who I was and to who I am, and it needed to speak to my writing.  I had narrowed it down to two choices.  The first image is of a bridge by a silent lake, which captured my love for nature, philosophy and unspoken truths.  It also shows the juxtaposition of man-made elements with nature, a common theme in my poetry.  The second image is of me looking out the window, reflecting upon my life and reflecting on the world, with leaves drifting down, whispering my secrets.

The first time I put this poll up for my friends a few months ago, it was a very close vote.  Some people liked the bridge because it had a more traditional look, while others liked the window because it was more personal.  The bridge won by 1 vote, I believe.  I wanted to have this vote again now that I am closer to finalizing my book to see if anything has changed.  Also, the cover design will influence how I plan to design the background of the pages within.  Thanks for your time and support.  I look forward to seeing the results!
