A to Z Challenge Poetry

#Acrostic – Creativity #atozchallenge

Conjuring up ideas
Revelling in daydreams
Engaging with the unknown
Artistically drawing themes
Through the depths of the mind
Imagination unearthed
Visual representations
Inspiring stories to be birthed
Trust in this amazing process
You and me, all possess

(c) Sanch Vee @ Sanch Writes (1 April 2017)


Acrostic poetry is a form of short verse and constructed by placing a capitalised word or phrase vertically down the page to form the initial letters of each line of poetry. Each line is used to relate to the word, or praise the subject. It does not have to rhyme. 

This has been written for the 2017 A to Z Challenge.

    Simply spellbinding! I love the word you chose for the Acrostic too. Kind of keeping with the theme of the blog as well. As fellow storytellers, we need this 🙂

    This is something i have never known. I often attempt simple straight forward poetry. Surely this is another creative way to pen those versus.

    Hello Saanch , Definitely sounds like my kind of poetry . I will surely give this a shot , esp the part about the verses need not rhyme , makes the process more fun. Isnt that how creativity should be , no rules – only free flowing thoughts!
    I am going to be learning so much through the month 🙂
    Happy Blogging!

    This is so apt for creativity! And I’m sure it wasn’t as simple as it looks – no poetry is as deceptively simple as it looks!

    • Sanch, the writer
      2 April 2017 at 12:20 am

      Haha…acrostic was one of the easy ones this month as I’ve tried it before. Some of the other ones later on were real doozies! In fact, I still have four more poems to write.

    Reveling in daydreams and unearthing imagination are the fun part; trusting the process is the hard part, some days. Good reminder, Sanch!

    Well, your posts are going to be fun to read. Poetry is so rich in form and style and I don’t think most people appreciate that. Looking forward to learning the A-Z of it.

    I love acrostics – and they are surprisingly hard to write elegantly! Also love the image of the coloured pencils – I have many, many coloured pencils, they make my mouth water! Fun theme. from Liz (poet!)

    Oh, I know this! I didn’t know what it’s called, though, so thank you.. I don’t think I’ve ever written a poem this way, however. Not a fan of it.
    Man, this is kind of a tall order, your theme. Hope you get ideas from A to Z! My theme is anything-writing related. Hope I get ideas, too, ha ha!
