Faiza Khan Acrostic

 

An Acrostic poem is where the first letter of each line spells a word, usually using the same words as in the title. The form has also been manipulated so that the word is spelled by the last letter on a line, or the center letter on each line.  The poem can be on any subject and rhyming is optional.


Example 1:

Seeking solace, somewhat spiritual, seamlessly sincere
Truly talented…talismanic tale
Rhymes ravishingly…reads ramblings redeeming redundancy rightly
Intriguingly innovative..immensely impressive
Driving daring designs delectably
Empathetic energy embracing everyone endearingly

Example 2:

She
Talks
Reflectively,
Inspiring
Deep
Encouragement

In the first example by Dr Faiza Khan ǀ @drfaizakhan  has also used alliteration.  This is not compulsory in the form but is very interesting.
