Acrostic Poem challenge

Poetry Free Verse Challenges


Acrostic is a poem or other writing in which the first letter of each line spells out a word, message or the alphabet. In this previous challenge we had to write a poem utilizing our first name.  These are my three entries.

Poem #1

Sound of one voice, one day.

United for humanity.

Zealots, hatred and discourse fades away.

Acceptance, freedom, and liberty.

New mantra to sing.

No one stands alone.

Earth, quietly waiting.

Poem #2

Simple yet so complex.

Understand and love the opposite sex.

Zodiac signs won’t tell, neither will the sun.

Accept one another and where we’re from.

Never doubt instincts or resist.

Now move forward.


Poem #3

Sounds of nature abound.

Undulating waves of green.

Zigzag goes the bees.

A bird’s morning song.

New season awakened.

North winds turning warm.

Eyes seeing spring.
