Poet (an acrostic poem)

 

Perceiving the world through the lens of the soul

Ordering the chaos while making order more chaotic

Everything is their purview, and yet they focus on the basic building blocks

Those are love, loss, hope, despair and the building blocks of humanity

Royal (an acrostic poem)

 

Reigning over everything he could see

Oliver placed his fists on his hips and chuckled

Yes, this is what supreme power felt like

And then his dreams and delusions shattered

Lily walked in and handed him a mop and bucket

Snail (an acrostic poem)

 

Slipping along my day ever so slowly but

Never leaving home.  It leaves me a bit stir crazy

As if the weight of my world rides around on my shoulders

If I could just find a way to leave it all behind

Looking at that a second time, leaving it all would just leave me sluggish

Price (an acrostic poem)

 

Purchasing liberty through sacrifice

Red stained trails through foreign lands

It fulfilled a solemn oath

Cutting freedom away from the oppressor’s  grasp

Ensuring another day for democracy

Wheel (an acrostic poem)

 

Well, she felt like she was just spinning in place

Her mind dizzy with the constant whirling of thoughts

Emanating from a Tasmanian Devil like cyclone

Every time she thought she had figured it out, doubt would roll over her again

Leaving her coasting along on thin tread

Splash (an acrostic poem)

 

So you think you’re a real big deal?

Perhaps you’re right, but to me you are just meh

Love to hear that?  Well get used to it

As you can’t seem to find the words to express yourself

So tell me princess, do you like feeling like you’re a fish out of water?

Here’s to trying to figure out how to stand on your own two feet

Scarf (an acrostic poem)

 

So do you want to take a small trip with me?

Care to see what the universe holds?

And as a bonus, you can travel not only in space but also in time

Really it will be a jolly good jaunt in my little Tardis over here

For we will try to avoid the fiddly “exterminate” bits
