Poetry challenge: Acrostic poem.



From the lonely “I”sland of emotion flowing from deep within

Ever bubbling upward”N”eath all the confusion wondering where it has been .

Desperately trying to “S”pring forth joyfully into the light of day.

Pushing through layers of “P”ain, as a bulb bursting through the soil of clay.

Springtime  lives dormant “I”nside until life giving water seeps through,

Awakening glorious, “R”adiant joy now ready to be nurtured by loves’ morning dew.

Lifes enthusiastic  energy “A”glow with God’s pink aura from the sunrise on display,

Simply lights up sparkling “T”ears of happiness having waited so long to feel and play

Sunlit bubbling waterfalls, “I”nnocence cascading tenderly over my soul’s rhyme

Sunsets spectrum of color cascades “O”nto new love’s empty canvas sublime .

God’s rays of everlasting hope reach for eternity, lonely island has “N”o say.

For God’s glorious shades of the dawn and dusk paint our love “S”ong anew each day.

  1. Wonderful. And such a savvy construction, illustration of the Acrostic Poem/Poetry.

  2. Harry ,I just wanted you to know I wrote an acrostic. 🙂 Thanks

  3. Acrostic poetry,
    Could I be mistaken?
    Right, I’m thinking it should start from the beginning,
    Or is it okay to have the letters in the middle?
    Seriously I thought only at the start,
    Thinking, yes, or at the end or beginning.
    In a double acrostic, same word both ends.
    Could I be mistaken?

    BTW, I clicked like as do like your version of an acrostic, but does it conform to the guide lines. The way I look at it is if you hadn’t highlighted the characters no one know it was an acrostic! With much respect and best regards,

    • An acrostic poem is a type of poetry where the first, last or other letters in a line spell out a particular word or phrase. The most common and simple form of an acrostic poem is where the first letters of each line spell out the word or phrase.

      • I just go with the flow

        Just do my own thing
        Understanding
        Simple acrostic poetry
        Taking life easy

        Going with and not against
        Obliging fellow me

        When ere its needed
        I will express my opinion
        Taking care not to offend
        Hoping peace will always prevail

        The thought of war, abhorrent
        Help those in need my intent
        Empathy for all who suffer

        Following law and order
        Love life, try to live it to its fullest
        Obeying natures rules
        Without trouble, stress or strife

        I just go with the flow, acrostic fashion 🙂

  4. I taught English for 30 years and this is what we went by… Young Writers/Acrostic Poem Definition. An acrostic poem is a type of poetry where the first, last, or other letters in a line spell out a particular word or phrase. The most common and simple form of an acrostic poem is where the first letters of each line spell out the word or phrase. I was feeling creative that night so I used the “other” placement of the letters in each line… Sorry if it was confusing! Blessings, Debbie
