Here's another idea to help you create poetry. Acrostics. If by chance you're not familiar with the phrase, I've included the definition.

ACROSTIC - 1. a poem or other composition in which certain letters in each line form a word or words. 2. a word puzzle constructed in this way.

Today I've included a couple of my acrostics for your viewing pleasure.

SUBMIT (this is for all the writers reading this)

S - Sending off our work creates in us
U - Unbelievable stress and untold strain
B - But, if you hold on to them until they’re perfect
M - Masterpieces could go unread, unpublished, unloved
I - Instead of touching someone else’s heart.
T - Take a chance – SUBMIT – imagine what can happen.


D - Don't forget to
R - Reach out and
E - Experience life.
A - Aspire to live
M - Masterfully.

Hope you give them a try. Trust me, they're a kick in the pants (right up there with prompts).

Love ya,

PS: Check out tomorrow - more teaching is on the way.
