It has been a while since we practiced the art of Acrostic Poetry which is writing the subject of the poem vertically with each letter on each line. Each letter of the poem becomes the first letter of each word horizontally in a line. Here is an example of an acrostic poem that I wrote a while back: My Inner Child Writes Poetry

Many layers beloW

Yearning each houR

I have an alibI

New kid insighT

Nagging to writE

Eclipsing adult powerS

Ready to raP

Childlike solO

Looking forward to catching the verticality on everyone's poetic expression. And of course we will engage in the usual poetic group therapy.

See ya!
