    You use a noun and talk about that noun.  Here is a very simple
      Poems are not
      Over rated.
      Everyone can write something
      Meaningful for
      Someone, if not everyone.

      Have you ever tried writing acrostic poem based on the letter of a person's name? I did. Why don't you try writing acrostic poem that contains more words per line? It is equally interesting.. Good work!

    Never heard of an acrostic poem. It seems that, sometimes, restrictions on style and form actually foster creativity. I may try this.

    I like the idea that
    certain poems can spell words,
    even if they can be a bit contrived (like this one). smile

    Basically this is

    Anything you have...

    Really, absolutely ANYTHING !

    That someone

    Else is willing to


    Burrowing through

    Internet sites for trades

    Searching the house for goods

    Tensely negotiating with

    Recyclers everywhere


    Had fun using this style on a Hub reply here :

      Mnemonics is cool, too. You'd be surprised that a poem can be not just a work of art composed of words. It can even be a painting. the mnemonic aspect is the designs and colors to which you have assigned a "meaning" which can be as complicated or simple as you want it to be. My own innovation.

    I tried an acrostic poem, for a class.

    Tick tock, tock tick
    In the kitchen
    Clock hammers loudly
    Knacking on your head
    Telling you to go
    Over the edge
    Can you do it
    Knowing it's not true?


    What do you think? This was my first one ever to be posted online. All the other, I didn't like.
