Mist (an acrostic poem)

Most of the time the future was pretty clear for her

It might not be the most exciting or glamorous, but it was predictable, just the way she wanted

So imagine her surprise when things started being murky

The fog descended on her future, and she was so scared she never took another step.

Radiate (an acrostic poem)

Revealing light streams over the landscape

Abstract shapes resolve into the finite

Dictating reality to manifest yet again

It warmed her heart every time it happened

As the sun slowly eased itself above the threshold of the horizon

The green flash announcing its next jaunt across the sky

Exciting her eyes with the potential of a new chance, a new day

Industry take 2 (an acrostic poem)

 

It is all about you, trust us

Now get to work and push through the pain

Don’t you know when we do well you do well

Until there is a downturn

Still, don’t worry about that.  We will always be successful

That’s why we need you to work so hard

Really, get back to work, we have your back

Your severance package will be exciting

Space Travel (an acrostic poem)

Stars stare without blinking

Putting me ill at ease as I float here

And wonder if I will ever feel solid ground beneath my feet again

Can’t believe those brilliant blue skies are so long gone

Everything out there is so black

 

To be an interstellar adventurer

Really should be so much more exciting

And it was two years ago, but now?

Viewing the infinite from inside my craft

Everything just seems so small and too large at the same time

Leaving me to wonder why I booked this flight

Manic (an acrostic poem)

Marty hung his head low and almost sobbed

As if it couldn’t get any worse, Heather would soon be there

Now how was he going to face her like this

It also meant that she wanted to come over, so that was exciting

Clutching himself he started to laugh with excitement

Plain (an acrostic poem)

Pushing the paperwork across his desk

Larry knew he wasn’t the most exciting man

As a matter of fact, he preferred that he was so stable

It made his life nice and predictable

Now if he could just convince himself of that
