I’m taking part in the Wordcraft poetry challenge hosted by Colleen. This week’s challenge is to write a specific form with a twist!
Write an acrostic poem with a syllable count of 8, 9, or 10 syllables per line (all the same, or a mixture of syllable counts, is fine).
HOW to WRITE an ACROSTIC poem
Acrostic poems are poems in which a word or several words are spelled out vertically. This is usually the first letter of each line.
I’ve chosen the word, ‘Imagination’ from the list of words provided by Colleen . Every line is made up of 10 syllables.
Icicles made of chocolate in caves
Mermaids flip their strong, long tails, making waves
A switch to reboot and end the hatred
Guns that spread love instead of spilling blood
Inequality and disease, a myth
Nutrients in grains of sand, edible
A time clock that reminds and reprimands
Talking stars for the lonely and the sad.
IQ in every drop of sunshine for all
Oysters with a pearl for every (wo)man
Now, is this imagination or real?
