SKY: An Original Acrostic

Ah! It’s finally warm and sunny here today. Unfortunately, I can’t enjoy the fine weather outside because I caught a bad bug. I’ve spent a lot of time sleeping the past few days. I’ve been too tired to do much on anything—including writing new poems. So…I dug into my poetry files once again and decided to post another acrostic poem from my unpublished collection Spring into Words: A Season in Acrostics.


Suddenly Earth’s blue dome springs to life, catches careening 

Kites, fills with the face of a smiling sun, the music of

Young songbirds and geese honking homeward.


Book Giveaway Reminder

My book giveaway for the third week of National Poetry Month (April 14-20) will be COWBOYS—with poems by David L. Harrisonand illustrations by Dan Burr. NOTE: I’ll announce the winner of COWBOYS on Sunday, April 21st.

A beautiful poem to celebrate the season! Thanks for sharing, Elaine. Don't you have a poetry collection coming out in the fall? I'm looking forward to reading it.
