An Inclination



Since yesterday’s poem sparked some interest in the Acrostic form of poetry, I thought I would share a variation that I hope works. You can read more about Acrostic poems and their variations on my Whittled Words series. This is not an original idea, but it has been one of the most challenging to write. I hope you enjoy and thanks to all my readers and supporters!



Delightful lights the inky page

O, I find it in the tilting maze

The Abstracted lends a tune

And a Greater slanted rune

Why to Only the given form

There be New hoping born

A different Association

Avoiding the Limitation

Consider it an Attempt

Not random Coincidence

Just a tipsy Reference

Retire the Old

Angularly Scroll

Create a Thing

Wished Inspiring

Tho’ it Crazy

  6. Good morning Brad.
    You are too good. The poem is beautiful. It is impeccably executed. I will never be able to write anything like this. But, we all have our talented Brad to write for us. We are lucky.
    Sending you love
