Serendipity

decorative

In June, I plan to explore writing the Acrostic Poem. I’ve played with this form of poetry in the past. I don’t know how I came up with the idea. It must have been a word experiment for me back in the day when I was playing with poetry. The definition of an Acrostic Poem is the first letter of each line should spell out a word or phrase vertically. This word or phrase plays the role of a theme or message. Also, this message can appear in the middle or end of the poem. Back in the day, I didn’t know I was participating in a style of poetry. My coming across the Acrostic poem design became a clever attempt at wordplay. My  Acrostic style of poetry for today is called Serendipity.

Serendipity

Sweet secret, a surrender to fate

Effervescent elixir for an embittered heart

Respite for the restless roving surrogate

Expectancy of another exceptional start

Needful encounter and a wonderful surprise

Delightful, delectable departure from the decay

Indisputable evidence of grace in disguise

Perfect encounter to brighten my dreary day

Irony of what I expect to see with my own eyes

Tougher than nails I planned to be,

Yet softer than silk when you come to me.

I am the author of Saving the Hen House. I didn't know when I started it would turn into a series. I love to ride motorcycles, the blues, my family, and going on adventures. This old hen rocks.
