Getting through the tight squeeze called life was always a challenge

As her whole existence had been between a rock and a hard place

Perhaps that’s why she was able to surprise them when she cracked her world and began to fly

Innovate (an acrostic poem)

It all comes down to creating something new

Not that it is easy, but with inspiration and perspiration

New things can come into existence

Of course you hope to capture lightning in a bottle

Value of your creation skyrockets, your company declared a unicorn

And you would be hailed as a genius

That is all well and good, but first do the hard part

Envision a new future and make it happen

Frame (an acrostic poem)

Finding the boarders of his existence

Realizing that what he pictures isn’t infinite

And that is strangely okay with him

Making his world more intimate

Enveloping him in a hug

Dome (an acrostic poem)

 

Dim stars twinkled from far overhead

Overwhelming ancient history is written in those heavens

Mary contemplated how her short existence fit in all of that

Eventually, she embraced her cousins since they were all made of the dust of creation

Smile (an acrostic poem)

So today she said hi to him and it put an unfamiliar happy expression on his face

Many days had passed since she last had talked to him

It had happened when he asked her about going on a date

Leaving him out in the cold and isolated with her refusing to acknowledge his existence

Eventually, it seemed, his daughter could forgive him for being a dad

Touched (an acrostic poem)

Taking a chance, Mary sneaked close to Clyde

Oblivious to her hovering, Clyde continued to play his video game

Unable to resist, May moved even closer, invading his personal space

Clyde acknowledged her existence with a grunt

His eyes went wide though as he met his electronic demise

Eyes met, and Mary realized she had crossed a line

Drawing up to her full height, Mary walked away.  Clyde smiled and followed
