I've a new poem to share. This week Colleen Chesebro challenged followers to stretch a bit and write an Acrostic poem. I had never heard of this form before reading Colleen's post. Just in case it is new to you as well, Colleen explained that Acrostic poems are ones in which a word is spelled out vertically, and each letter becomes the first letter of each line.
She instructed us to choose one of these words: magical, charm, specter, fantasy, conjure, unicorn, imagination, oracle or malevolence. I decided to go with FANTASY. Additionally, she asked that we use a syllable count of 8, 9, or 10 syllables per line.
My poem has 7 lines, and each line has 9 syllables.
Whew! I did it, and I hope you like it.
