#Acrostic – Creativity #atozchallenge

Conjuring up ideas
Revelling in daydreams
Engaging with the unknown
Artistically drawing themes
Through the depths of the mind
Imagination unearthed
Visual representations
Inspiring stories to be birthed
Trust in this amazing process
You and me, all possess

(c) Sanch Vee @ Sanch Writes (1 April 2017)

    Wow! Loved this so much! I just remembered that I was supposed to follow your blog throughout this month and here I am…entertained thoroughly!

  17. Sreesha says:

    Creative indeed! I never knew about this form before (which is something I guess I will say multiple times as I come to your page during this month)

    • Sanch, the writer says:

      Haha…acrostic was one of the easy ones this month as I’ve tried it before. Some of the other ones later on were real doozies! In fact, I still have four more poems to write.

  18. Holly Jahangiri says:

    Reveling in daydreams and unearthing imagination are the fun part; trusting the process is the hard part, some days. Good reminder, Sanch!

  19. SorchiaD DuBois says:

    Well, your posts are going to be fun to read. Poetry is so rich in form and style and I don’t think most people appreciate that. Looking forward to learning the A-Z of it.

    Fabulous poem. I enjoy reading acrostics but rarely remember to try writing them. You have inspired me.

  24. Ishieta @ Isheeria's says:

    wowo! what a start! I love what you have done here… a complete story and point of view 10 lines! Bravo!

  25. J.Gi Federizo says:

    Oh, I know this! I didn’t know what it’s called, though, so thank you.. I don’t think I’ve ever written a poem this way, however. Not a fan of it.
    Man, this is kind of a tall order, your theme. Hope you get ideas from A to Z! My theme is anything-writing related. Hope I get ideas, too, ha ha!

  26. Shweta Suresh says:

    I know I’m late to the party but I couldn’t resist from commenting – that was an amazing poem!
