Examples of Three Types of Poetry: ABC, Acrostic, and Haiku
As I sit here
Beauty surrounds me.
Children play happily.
Dolphins jump and play in the waves.
Each and every grain of sand
Forming miles and miles of shore.
Intervals, chattering noisily to all who listen.
Kites flying effortlessly across the sky
Large and small boats sailing
Moving across the sea
Opaque waters in hues of blue and green.
Periwinkles and other shells
Quietly waiting below the water's surface
Ready to be plucked from it's depths.
Sunset begins to fall,
Turning the sky into beautiful shades of orange, purple, and gold.
Underwater sea creatures nibble at toes while
Very fast fiddler crabs find their underground homes.
Wind blows gently through my hair, causing me to
eXhale in blissful satisfaction
Zealous fan of such a beautiful creation.
Inviting, sharing, crying, caring
The lazy summer
brings rest, renewal, and fun
in the hot sunshine.
Autumn winds blow soft
As leaves fall gracefully down
From the high tree tops.
Clouds surround the sun
As frigid temperatures
bite at our noses.
