Watermelon (acrostic) for the fruit gauntlet

by CJ Maleney   Sep 4, 2018

Wistful memories of replayed scenes
Attention of detail to everything
Taste so sweet and so fleeting
Everlasting is not this thing
Reminisce I can and must
Memories of things I cannot trust
Every desire and lust sated
Left to my own choice and so berated
One taste of nectar for one week mind
Never again for me to find

    Craig, I liked this in the contest and I like this now. Acrostics can be easy, but you ramped up the difficulty with the rhyme. watermelon - the shape so like other human attributes. I like the play on imagery and the expression of the passing of time.

    Well done.

      Thanks dude.

      It didn't end up as I intended. My initial thoughts were quite frivolous, but it morphed into a poem about experience.

      A little unknown fact about me is I actually find it difficult not to rhyme. Many things start out not doing so but end up in the song.
