MELANCHOLY – Acrostic (Emotions)

I finally got the rules – for the regular prompts I need to keep a word count on all lines, but who’s to stop me from breaking the rules? 😉 The truth is, I wrote these several acrostics before I realised there were rules and the other thing is I find it hard to alter these poems as yet. Maybe later, aligator 😉

So, here is my offering on the September prompt of Emotions: (strange, this one is almost within the rule, but not quite)


Mild waves
Enjoying the
Limitless endevour of
Angry passions
Never truly
Crossing my
Head, but
Lying in wait
Yet to come out and play.

HAS BEEN – Acrostic, Two Words

This is a short Acrostic to honor the Acrostic Only two-words prompt for September:


Soaring high

Eccentrically, that they are actual
Not likely!

Haste (Acrostic – Single Word)

Recently,  I found this amazing poetic prompts site –  Acrostic Only.  They give monthly prompts consisting of Regular (1, 2 words,  phrase,  children’s corner,  emotion and music & dance) and Innovative prompts which are different each time.  Prompts for September can be found on their web site:  here.

Hurry up
Save yourself
Effort to be slow.

SEA – Acrostic Haiku

Acrostic Only –  August 2011 –  Acrostic Haiku –  SEA


Southern seas await
Ecstatic waves to surge up
At ease with dolphins.
