Certainly this
Unique, five-year-
Long project with
My muse has been
Insightful and delightful, but
Now I choose
A different way
To play with words.
It’s another climb and that’s
Okay. Signed, with love, the Acrostics

Many thanks to all who have inspired me and shared new words with me for this project.

One's thumbs

Twirl that inner
Into slow idle
Do your best to
Let it rest.
Enjoy your pensive fiddling.

Sonic waves wash
Us. It’s
Never seen, that

One minute

Springing into a speedy
Pace the
Racers dash
In a math paper blur,
Now placing
Their pencils down.

Versatile material

Papyrus and other kinds of pulp
And water
Provide for writing, wrapping,
Even trapping (flies), as well as elegant
Room divides.

Another look

Reach for
View again
Initial drafts,
Seeking to
Excel in your verbal craft.

Making a rain stick

Squeeze and pinch –
Quite gently –
Until the eighteen
Inches of foil are
Now a silver snake all
Coiled inside a roll;
Hear the shhhh of the rain you control. 

Thank you, Jess D., for the inspiration. You and your class totally rock!
