Poetry is unique and individual. And can be for all ages.
Acrostic The word acrostic is formed from the Greek word acros (outermost) and stichos (line of poetry).

My Acrostic #2 Full of pure goodness of the body. Ripe, tasty bites to shallow. Underneath the fruit trees lies masses of fruit. Inside the perfect fruit lies delicious juice. Trees thriving with lush nutritious fruit.

Feelings wont come out. Its like a padlock in me without a key.
Emotions spills out all over the dark light. Theirs grief, gloominess and misery.
Tragic swirls around in circles.
All thoughts splash away. Memories thrown behind, some remain.
Autumn leaves fall down and scatter i try to walk the heart breaking experience off; but it stays. It feels as if family has been stolen. Until the key is found. The padlock unseals and my life is a new born chicken. I have found the way to to glory. It is pure, unlocked. I am in a different world.
I see my grandparents in this golden world. Heaven.
This poem is about my grandparents that have died.
True friendship is not words but meanings. True friendship lasts a life time. True friends are hard to find, harder to leave and impossible to forget.

Rapunzel’s Rap Rapunzel was a girl with hair of gold Trapped in a tower in days of old She wasn’t allowed outside to play And her golden hair grew longer each day Grew longer and longer and longer each day. The witch who locked her up was mean With a pointed nose and a face of green Mean mean meaner than the queen of mean. - Sonja Dunn
