Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 23 February 2019!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out an Acrostic Poem. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is an Acrostic poem?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
Acrostic Poetry is where the first letter of each line spells a word, usually using the same words as in the title.
Examples of Acrostic Poetry
He broke my heart
Every piece, shattered
All I wanted was his love
Real, as he promised
True, as mine for him
But he walked away
Right in the middle of paradise
Every beat of my heart
Aches for his love
Keeping the flame aglow
I will wait by the light
Never losing the hope
God will send him back to me
Shadow Poetry (Double Acrostic)
Summers’ gifts of sensational feelings,
Heaping happiness in poets’ path
Awarding praises for poetic data
Doses of episodes, where lived
Original thoughts; orgasmic tempo
Weavers of words; morning’s dew
Prosing spewing from every lip
Operetta unions, written in solo
Energy of many, sharing love
Tears touching every heart
Rivalry forgotten, visions clear
You and I spreading peace and joy
