Acrostic Poem: Awakening

An acrostic poem, “Awakening”.

Wake to the beckoning of a new dawn, the smell of a fresh breeze coming through the window. It smells of dampness, dew, and dust. It has Summer written all over it. An acrostic poem and digital art piece to draw you into the awakening of a morning.



Awakening…Stirring soul
Willing new dawn rises with Hello.
A little birds chirp. Singing
Keen, bright melodies
Emerging orange sun dares
Newly summer day
Idol eyelids wakeup call
Nuances soothing faces
Gratitude for another day

An Acrostic Poem.

What is an Acrostic poem?

An acrostic is a poem, where the first letters of the lines spell out a topic or title of the poem. Acrostic poems may or may not have a rhyming scheme. Look at my example above, the title is “mornings”, each line I used the letter A, W, A, K, E, N, I, N, G, to create a non-rhyming acrostic poem.
