Finding a New Way to Write ~ Acrostic Poem Style


I have been enjoying some creative poem writing lately.  I have found a joy in creating acrostic poems.

The idea came to me through the Abundant Mama Program and Peace Circle.  Each month there is a theme and we are given a word to turn into an acrostic poem.

It can be as simple as finding one word that starts with each letter of the main word. Think of different words that start with each letter.  Then pick the ones that resonate most with you.

For example, let's take the word Smile. See, More, Intrigue, Loving, Everyday

Another way is to make it into sentences with each letter of the main word at the start.  Let's take the word smile again. Seeing myself stretching, Moving mindfully, Into the space around me, Letting myself listen and learn, Enveloping myself in the moment.

It is a fun way to write and let your mind create a flow with words.  As I create the poems I am going to share with you what I write.  If you want to join in, try creating your own acrostic poem and leave it in the comments using the word that I use in the post.
