Moss — so tall above the frost
Grows — spring congratulations
Fat — slow, sprung, event — Lent
On — melting snow, be drunk
A — first, sign of life begun
Rolling — waves of verdant light
Stone — cast your eternal spirit.
Submitted as part of “National/Global Poetry Writing Month” (#NaPoWriMo #GloPoWriMo).
Today’s prompt: Day Six: “Today, write a variation of an acrostic poem. But rather than spelling out a word with the first letters of each line, I’d like you to write a poem that reproduces a phrase with the first words of each line. Perhaps you could write a poem in which the first words of each line, read together, reproduce a treasured line of poetry? You could even try using a newspaper headline or something from a magazine article. Whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy this prompt.”
