Vertical Word Play

Today Christine led our writing group, choosing to revisit a session on acrostic poems. These use words written vertically down a page with the poem flowing from, or dictated by, each letter. We started out with the most obvious word, Artsenta, and then moved on to random words chosen from a box. Ideally the poem would explore or reflect the word that we chose in some way. As always it is interesting to see the way different people tackle it. There's no one right way to do this (or anything?).



Artistic awareness
Reels you in
Tremoring with colour
Seductively
Enticing
Never dull
Triumphantly shouting
Art




Arriving at an art space
Ready to make and create
Thinking about transforming matter
Sort of like a mad scientist or magician
Except it's about beauty and it's
Not always easy
There's practice and patience
And lot's of artistic license!




Artistic creativity will become the
Recognition of your activity, it is
There but disguised before your eye of detail
Sensing pride within your
Emotional sensations to your own pathway of exploring your
Neutral self-esteem of expressions, your
Thoughts can show significant exposure within your own
Artistic world




Artistically created
Rough edges
Tenderly smoothed
Stumped
Empty of ideas
Nothing coming
Turmoil
Aaargh!!




A
Rough
Time
Smoothing
Edges
Noting
The
Aesthetic
