A few months ago I tried to challenge myself with writing every type of poetry. I think I wrote about 5 poems for that challenge. I just looked back and did not see them labeled as specific poems and it was over 6 months ago. That being said I decided to start this challenge again. This time I will tell you the type and the definition of it. I will be using ShadowPoetry.com as my poetic dictionary and list.
The first poem is:
Each line builds with a successive letter in the alphabet. Also referred to as an alphabet poem
A new day starts
Bright is the sun
Cascading light into my room
Do you hear the birds
Echoing in the distance?
Far away are the sounds
Gathering of the morning life
Happy little far away birds
I hear them as the sun cascades light
Just as I wake in the morning.
Kindly they sing me awake
Lovingly the chirp in the distance
Morning has come and I am at peace
Night is no more
Opening my eyes I can see the daylight
Peace washes over me with the bright light of morning.
Quieting the distant birds in my ears
Raising my hope for the new day
Staying in bed
Tangled in blankets
Unwilling to move from my peaceful state.
Very hopeful that my peace will stay
Waiting for reality to set in
X-ing out the dreams in my head
Youth seems to leave me
Zeal for the morning drifts away as the birds fly.
Wow X was hard to do and I wish I woke up like that.
