Image of Poetry Defined: Acrostic Poem

Poetry Defined – Acrostic Poem

In this, Poetry Defined Acrostic Poem? I will define its purpose and structure.

As an author, I am intrigued and challenged by the acrostic poem. A form of poetry which uses names or words through the first letter of each line. The inspiration behind that of an acrostic is to expose while striving to conceal within the poem. In some cases, the acrostic form has been used at the end or in the middle of the verse. Hope you enjoy our Poetry Defined Acrostic Poem example below.


In the poetry defined acrostic poem below I address the torments of a child having a nightmare. Thus, the word “hear” is the describing word.

How the Restless-child screams
Every dark like shadow crawls;
And the hapless mother awakens
Racing fragments of the minds wall.

Free Verse Poem Nudging Cold

In this, “Free Verse Poem Nudging Cold, golden fingers caress earth’s crust and hearts.

This morning was exhilarating, and I was inspired to write this little “Free Verse Poem Nudging Cold.” With my pink and cream colored cap, I embrace the cold with open arms. There’s something to be said about being dressed for the cold of winter. Piping hot coffee in hand and walking outside and crisp cold air that freezes inside the breath. I can feel it trying to creep inside my layers of clothing. My body fights back. Then the sun rises and nudges the cold again as it moves across my face and body. Euphoria!

Nudging at the cold.

image free verse poem shadow play

Free Verse Poem Shadow Play

In this, “Free Verse Poem Shadow Play,” childhood memories flood black and white.

In, “Free Verse Poem Shadow Play,” a flashback. As a child, my father played a huge impact on my life in the name of “creativity. The many hours of snapping pictures, and then going to his darkroom to process the roll of film. Little gems of life evolve before your eyes under a liquid solution. He’s gone now. But I will never forget what he gave me. The angles, the shadow play, the smiles.


image free verse poem shadow play

Free Verse Poem Shadow Play

On the surface of anomalistic paving stones
light stretches across dimensions.

For a fleeting time
shadows play with depth and perception.

I watch with camera in hand as a bystander in darkness.

Already I see shadows marauding grooves, endless voids.
I feel the quietness rush,
Imaging it is stopping an erected buzzing lamppost.

I stand and anticipate.
The exchange of light and darkness.
The chilling air.
Revealing time has moved a micro-second.
And then the shape changes,
And rectangular become longer,
And broader, lighter shades fade.
Whose fluctuations captured by a camera lens in video mode?
And the photographer whose knees are bending
Aching and balanced.

She inhales and breathes out slowly—

For creating picture-perfect— shakiness isn’t plausible.
As a photographer in a long black coat, with nimble fingers.
On the start button,
Time encapsulated, and shadows and light, framed second by second.
Changes,
Changes,

Steady is the hand that holds.

Holding steady!
Light moves
Shadows twist
Turn
Molding, bending over grooves.

The greatest video made
Is one tested with patience?
One of creativity.
There’s something—
Something inspiring about it—

I mean, the moment of shadows and light.

Free Verse Poem Night Birds and Constellations

In this, “Free Verse Poem Night Birds and Constellations,” sometimes weighed, in theory, is the mind of reaching.

In this, digital art piece and “Free Verse Poem Night Birds and Constellations.” A wandering mind seeking answers can be like a dark room. A dark room with closed blinds, shut off from outside visuals. Visual that possibly hold the theory of reasoning, hope, understanding. Maybe a look at the sky will soothe the heaviness and bring light to solace.

Dining with black airfoil

and scattered constellations.

So much visual, and I deep in theory,

blinded by racing thoughts.

Daily Haiku Winter Hawk

In this, “Daily Haiku Winter Hawk,” one feels the silence as it falls upon hands, hair, and nose.

A melting moment in, “Daily Haiku Winter Hawk,” Temporary— It speaks of weightlessness. The row of lattice wanders into standing soldiers. Wings split the morning cold. Snowflakes wander endlessly. One lands upon my nose. Warmth and cold collide. Gone— no goodbyes.

Furline boots wrap a warm blanket around toes. Steaming cup of coffee escapes into crispness. Exhaling water vapor from open mouth— Tiny droplets hung in a cloud. An ah-ha moment. Golden fingers touch.

The old field— once green.

Old man Winter sneezes white,

What is Appreciation?

When you have an appreciation for something, you can see and truly understand its good qualities. One way to show your appreciation for a particularly wonderful musical performance is to give a standing ovation when it’s over.

A slightly different kind of appreciation is having good taste or the ability to see aesthetic beauty in something, like members of a wine appreciation group or the teacher of a music appreciation class. There’s also the appreciation that means a rise in monetary value—you might refer to the appreciation of the value of a house, for example.

Digital Art – Light in Hole

Expression of fantasy reside in Digital Art – Light in Hole

In this, Digital Art – Light in Hole, I think a haiku would best express the realm of fiction. In this digital art piece, I merged with double exposure a cut log, a butterfly on a clover, a cityscape scene to look as if all was flowing into the circular light. I thought giving it an ink effect would be suiting. Tell what you think?

What is Digital Art?

Digital art is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative or presentation process. Since the 1970s, various names have been used to describe the process, including computer art and multimedia art. Digital art is itself placed under the larger umbrella term new media art.[1][2]

After some initial resistance,[3] the impact of digital technology has transformed activities such as paintingdrawing, sculpture and music/sound art, while new forms, such as net art, digital installation art, and virtual reality, have become recognized artistic practices.[4] More generally the term digital artist is used to describe an artist who makes use of digital technologies in the production of art. In an expanded sense, “digital art” is contemporary art that uses the methods of mass production or digital media.[5]

Free Verse Upon the Awakening

Free Verse Upon the Awakening, it’s easy to forget, to go on day after day, fulfilling everyday life.

Do you sometimes tuck away or brush off the little things. I find myself doing it from time to time until “Free Verse Upon the Awakening,” reminds you it could fade within seconds.

When I create a digital art piece, I remember the places I’ve been, how I could have lost my life, was it fate or GOD who had other intentions. One thing I’ve realized is I am just a small, small piece of it all.

With each layer added in this digital art piece, is a layer of my life, her life. I was saved for her.


Image of Free Verse Upon the Awakening

Free Verse Upon the Awakening

It all gets so mundane at times.

Until the alarm clock breaks
dreams and morning light.

Bianca waltzes in with
A sweet peck on my cheek and

Morning mom. I’m so excited to get my new recorder today.

You can’t top that.
Simplicity and the little things that you smile into blue sky until it clouds cover.
Simplicity and little things, sisters of appreciation.

I know what this recorder offers her.

A voice for tomorrow. The next American Idol. Dreams.

Image Free Verse Therapy

Free Verse Therapy

Free Verse Therapy— listening is sometimes the only sound a heart needs to feel with compassion.

Free Verse Therapy,” was written as an example of showing compassion, not through words, just being there, open with silence, being a sounding board without noise. Touch can reveal intimacy beyond the physical pleasure, reaching to the core of the heart where pain resides. Touch can heal the soul. Sometimes, all I want is someone to hear what my heart desires to reveal; then tears come in therapy.


Image Free Verse Therapy

FREE VERSE THERAPY

The headrail of my bed comes with
lavender hazel eyes,
the resting place for my yielding tears.

Unwind the morning
under the gentle caress.

Your tender fingers seduce in emotion.

Your compassion will consume me, poured out-revealing;
Charlatan Syndrome
Barred walls disheveled
your arms, understanding therapist
all my pain, unraveled.
