Written for:  Poems of Garden Gnomes – Form Friday – Acrostic Poetry
An ACROSTIC is a poem (or other form of writing) in which the first letter of each line (or paragraph, or other recurring feature in the text) spells out a word, message or the alphabet.
Choose something of Fall, and make it the title of the poem.

Pure orange joy
Ultimate season for picking
More than you need.
Proud and stout, stem or without,
Kind of tall and thin–even
In white, strange sight.
Nothing like the scent of
Spices like cinnamon, and ginger clouding the kitchen.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
