Over (an acrostic poem)

Image: i.redd.it/bc0psy2ptyk61.jpg

On top of all things, Macy waited

Verifying that everyone in her domain was doing what she desired

Everyone today seemed to be listening to her wishes

Reaching our with one paw, she batted at the dust to demonstrate her approval

Cider (an acrostic poem)

Cold pressed apple fluids left outside in a large jug

In the dead of winter the water freezes on top

Driving the flavor into a more concentrated solution below

Each time the blah ice is then removed and the process repeats over and over for months

Rewarded finally with a fermented drink that tasted of sunny autumn days and patience

Best (an acrostic poem)

Being top dog was what she had strived for all her life

Except now she wondered about what the pole position cost her

So she decided that being number one in society wasn’t that important

That being amazing at being herself was worth the real blue ribbon

Steak (an acrostic poem)

She took out the long wooden stake and drove it into his heart

The vampire shuddered once before collapsing to the tabletop

Emily smiled.  Buffy had nothing on her

Alan took a step back from her, horrified

Killing someone in cold blood because they liked their sirloin rare seemed a bit over the top

Fork (an acrostic poem)

Focusing all his attention on his spaghetti,

Oliver slowly twirled the utensil on top of his spoon,

Revolving strand after strand around their tines,

Knowing that he was breaking his dead Italian grandfather’s heart.

All he wanted was to be at the top of the mountain

Being able to show his superiority to those below him

Only those he wanted to bow to him didn’t see him that way

Vowing that he was nothing but a balloon filled with ego and hot air

Even though that hurt him, he laughed.  That hot air and ego allowed him to float up high.

Peaks (an acrostic poem)

 

Push yourself all the way up to the summit.

Enjoy the view from being on top of the world

And in that moment, realize that all the work was worth it

Keep that high in your heart no matter how low you find yourself later on.

So you know you can do that climb again.  You have proof.

Fix (an acrostic poem)

 

Finding all the things that are wrong can be depressing

It can make you want to just throw everything out and get something new

X that idea out, sit down with your list, start at the top and rebuild it and make it yours

Parrots (an acrostic conversation)

 

Perhaps he is just sleeping.

And that’s the excuse you want to go with?

Really, he could be just catching some shut-eye.

Realize that I have watched the Monty Python skit like a billion times.

Oh, then yeah, he’s dead

That was anticlimactic.

So do you want to start it from the top again?

Flood (an acrostic poem)

 

Flowing water piled on top of flowing water

Leaving the water underneath it even wetter

Overwhelming the earth’s ability to contain the fluid assault

Obliterating the concept of dry land

Determined to not let an ark survive this time
