House Work 2 (Acrostic)

Acrostic Prompt: House Work from The Typewriter Workshop

Have you nothing better to

Occupy your time and mind

Unfulfilled dreams-things to learn

So pack up your potential

Escape from the household chores

Write the great American novel

Or take a long walk

Release your pent up passions

Kindness should start with yourself

House Work 1 (Acrostic)

Acrostic Prompt: House Work from The Typewriter Workshop

How does it get sooo

Overwhelmingly dirty in one week

Under the bed needs sweeping

Scrub the floors but good

Every nook and cranny now

Wash all that dirty laundry

Organize that messy hall closet

Rest–oh no not yet

Kitchen isn’t gonna clean itself

Clean-House

Nova

Ignites the sky

Gaze at constellations

How many can you identify?

Tethered, as you are, to Earth

No light shines the shroud

I walk alone into the black

Giggling anxiously, eyes darting

Hidden horrors await behind unseen bends

Nary a sound, hush

Inside all are sleeping

Go quickly child, run

Here is your chance

To escape into the dark night

Navy sky provides backdrop to be

Gleaming, glowing, golden

I.

Open expanse of liquid luminescence

Cerulean blue, deep saline

Essential to man &

All known life

Nature nurtures

II.

Obliged, we are to your

Calm and tranquility

Eternally lapping waves

Assuage our weary souls

Nautical Utopia

One dream one

Eternally despair free

Oak (Acrostic)

Oh, lovely old oak

Always there for me

Keep your branches stretched

To welcome me when

Running, I reach you

Envelope me in your

Embrace true and safe
