NaPoWriMo: Day 11

Poetry prompt: Acrostic

Write a poem, where the first letter of the verse in the poem spells out a word you choose, subject, and message. You can go even further: write a poem where each starting letter of the line is a consecutive letter of the alphabet, from A to Z.

In poetry it is called acrostic technique and poets frequently use it while experimenting with their own writing.

Poetry is everywhere

Pivotal question
Often stays unanswered:
Even when you
Think you know it all.
Reason tries to rationalize
You, me and all there is.

Intricate words of language
Still firmly wait to be

Expelled out of the mouth of the world
Visioning beauty
Emanating joy, while
Reason yet still alone
Yellow with envy
Wants its explanation.
How am I to discern these words to you?
Even when I force
Reason to
Evaporate and let the words mitigate?
