Amias of ‘Acrostic only‘ has come up with an amazing plan of making more people interested and aware of the genre of poetry called Acrostic.
Now, if you are wondering what acrostic is all about.. put in simple words.. its like an abbrevation and a poetry…
We start every new line with a character from the title of the poem and keep consistent with the theme all through the poem. It sounds tough but it really is not if you keep practicing 🙂
As a part of the first exercise, we were to write a poem on “MIRRORS”
And the challenge was to write it in simple acrostic, one word acrostic, double acrostic and column acrostic.
My first take was…
Many images flit
Illusive, tarnished and distorted
Re-invent them with truth
Onerous reflections stifling
Relegate them to oblivion
Spot the unmasked, real you!
And for the single word..
