Suit (an acrostic poem)


Standing in front of the mirror, he feels vulnerable

Until he starts the process of putting on his armor

It’s part the ritual and part the layers of protection.

That makes him feel invulnerable, especially with the addition of the power tie.

Shine (an acrostic poem)

Silently the stars witnessed Dave’s accomplishment

He lit the lights on the old apple tree

It would complete the ritual set in motion fifty years ago

No one knew the reason why it was so important to Dave

Everyone did enjoy the fruit of his labor
