This Week’s Form:

Acrostic poetry is a unique form of expression that combines creativity, wordplay, and hidden messages within a structured format. In this type of poetry, the first letter of each line, when read vertically from top to bottom, forms a word or phrase that is typically related to the theme or subject of the poem. Acrostics can be found in various cultures and have been used throughout history as a means of conveying deeper meanings or conveying personal messages.

Rules of Acrostic Poetry:

  1. The first letter of each line will spell out a word when read vertically
  2. There is no set length of line
  3. There is no rhyme scheme

    Prompt 64 – Ordering Food or Drink

    It’s easy to think about rhyming poetry in terms of art. Let’s try and break from the normal and imagine ordering food or drinks or something with a tanaga.

    Example Tanaga:

    “I’ll drink deep–gin and tonic
    Now, this might seem ironic
    The drink is so iconic
    If you can, hold the tonic”
