Syllabically, or: Authentically

Poetry Partners #178

An ‘Acrostic Poem’ by Melissa Lemay of ‘Mom with a Blog’

Perusing poetry
About various prompts
Reading and rereading
Tankas, tercets, terza rima
Night owls writing
Eluding emotions
Rendered inconsequential
Syllabically

An ‘Acrostic Poem’ by ben Alexander of โ€˜The Skepticโ€™s Kaddishโ€™

Everywhere, pulsating feelings
Motion, vying for attention,
Only for sheer lack of outlet
That they so mightily desire-
In styles both old and new alike,
Ordered words can channel chaos,
Nouns are, verbs do, as we convey-
Syllabically heartbeats sustain us.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)
