The Workshop and me :)

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.

If you are interested email her here, she will email you the invite. The work shop is only till 26th of April. And then the contest starts for the “Best Acrostic of all. ” It even has cash prizes!

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 πŸ™‚

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
Recurring confabulations!
Re-invent them with truth
Onerous reflections stifling
Relegate them to oblivion
Spot the unmasked, real you!

And for the single word..

The other two challenges are yet to be done! I have learned so much in simply 2 days. Its easy to get people who give you good reviews. But constructive criticism is so hard to come. You guys should join too. ( After all it is free!!)
P.S: Β Visit her site for weekly prompts and more examples. And for my attempts ( I am pretty regular there) please click here.
