Make head, or: Tail of this

My 2nd double acrostic poem

Poetic forms are all over the map ~
Ukiah, sonnet, limerick, haiku,
Zanze, atom, sestina, ghazal, blitz...
Zaniness, romance, suspense, darkness, schmaltz...
Let yourself go; experience the pull;
Every one can connect to something else.

d’Verse poetics:

For the love of puzzles…

For today’s d’Verse prompt, poets were challenged to either write 1) a poem that in some way relates to a puzzle they’ve been faced with; 2) one that includes the word ‘puzzle’; or 3) an acrostic… extra points for an Acrostic Plus!

For my contribution, I opted for a double acrostic… my second such poem. Here is my first:

Dehumanization, or: Zoology

  1. David, clever indeed. Your effort is an Acrostic ++ I guess. I enjoyed both poems and messages, but your first had more meat on it, more poetic depth for me.

  2. Brilliant David! πŸ˜πŸ‘ I see what you did there with the word Puzzle going down either side as the 1st & last letter of each sentence. Clever! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ And yes: we have poetry, let every one else connect with something else. Bravo!!

    1. Thanks so much, Helen. You’re very kind.

      Please feel free to call me David, which is my first name… the word ‘ben’ just means ‘son of’ in Hebrew…. I know my pen name is confusing – sorry!
