Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 23 February 2019

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 Poem

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

Example #1

Heartbreaking

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

Example #2

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
