The challenge this week was to write an acrostic poem using a word that relates to fall. Here are the results.
Tiel Aisha Ansari at Knocking From Inside wrote an acrostic poem in sonnet form (and in record time)! I don't know how she does it. Read her amazing poem entitled Changing Leaves.sister AE at Having Writ wrote about the air of fall in her poem for crisp.
TadMack, one of two creative minds behind Finding Wonderland, left a poem in the comments. I have posted it below.Another full moonElaine at Wild Rose Reader shares 4, count 'em, 4 autumn acrostics!
Unearthly shadows drape.
Thin branches scrape a tune
Upon a window's pane.
Migrating wings flash
Now prepare for winter's lash.
My acrostic breaks all the rules, as it's not about the word itself (which I'm guessing is a no-no). However, since my son has Halloween on the brain and has done nothing but talk about costume choices, I couldn't get these thoughts/words out of my head. Perhaps now that they are down on paper (electrons?), I may actually be able to write a poem about pumpkins!
Picture a witchUgly and mean.My brother's an alien,Purple and green.Kids dress in costume,It's that time of year--Now it's Halloween!
It's not too late if you still want to play. Write your own acrostic and leave me a comment about your poem. I'll be happy to add it to the list.
