One of my friends is celebrating National Poetry Month by featuring a different poem form each day on her tumblr. She is encouraging others to follow along and write their own poems in each form. I am a bit behind, so this is the poem I wrote for the one she posted yesterday, an acrostic.
Slipping into our view at last
Promising sultry summer days
Renewing hope in sunshine.
Inebriated by sunlight, we make
New attempts at this thing called life
Giving thanks for every moment.
