Fall (an acrostic poem)

Finding the remains of summer scattered upon the ground

As I walk along the shrinking daylight

Leaving the time of green behind

Looking toward the time of stark contrasts of dark and white

Explore (an acrostic poem)

Everything in this tomb reeked of antiquity

Xenon lamp in hand, Rachel peered closer to the relief

Pomegranates punctuated with palm fronds trialed to a sarcophagus

Lovingly she thought about her fame and how she kept this whole thing to herself

Oblivious to a small vibration that sent dust falling from the ceiling

Rachel went to leave, but the tunnel back was now blocked by a ton of stone

Eventually someone would find her remains there as well

Pumpkin (an acrostic poem)

Pushing his horse to go faster, Jon peered through the fog

Under the full moon, the fog formed a concealing haze

Muttering under his breath, Jon was forced to slow down

Pelting his head on a branch wouldn’t be much better than getting caught

Killed was killed, no matter which way his head crumbled

It began to clear and Jon could see the old school house.  He was almost home

Nathan found Jon’s remains mingled with those of an orange squash on the school’s wall
