Simplify (an acrostic poem)

Sitting amid the chaos of his desk

Ian surveyed his life with a simple glance

Many pieces of paper that made up his existence

Played among other scraps from other peoples’ lives

Leaving his desk a chaotic world of its own

Ian questioned how he should approach this task

For there were so many ways this could go badly

Yet a match was such a satisfying answer…

Starlight (an acrostic poem)

Standing in a drizzle of ancient photons

Thinking of the vast distances they had traveled

Announcing their presence on my retina

Revealing their origin in the universe

Losing myself in that moment

I lay back opening my parched eyes

Gazing even deeper back in time

Hoping one day I could gaze so far back

That I could see the birth of my atoms

Grammar (an acrostic poem)

Gifting the world with your awesome thoughts

Reaching deep you crafted the perfect haiku

As you hit publish, you sit back waiting for the praise to roll in

Meanwhile thousands of people wonder about you

Many let you know about the difference between your and you’re

Already too late to retract the mistake, you stamp your foot down

Ranting that it was fine since true writers no when to brake the rules

Random (an acrostic poem)

Reaching for an apple, the doctor was admitting he didn’t want to be there

Aspirin wouldn’t be put on the market if discovered today

Never talk about Fight Club, but hanging fliers in public spaces is encouraged

Don’t let woodchucks into log cabins, just in case they decide to answer THE question

Obvious things are never obvious, especially to conspiracy theorists

Making acrostic poems can be a fun hobby
