Angelic (Acrostic)

by Maple Tree   Mar 21, 2018

Aching souls scatter
Nearby alleys clatter
Gutter ways cry
Endless hearts die
Labled streets smother
Indexed as sister, brother
City of angels hover and recover.

    Judging Comment - Angelic (acrostic) by maple tree points 4 - This form like many others is not usually recognised but I think they should be especially when done so well because in my opinion acrostics are hard to write well let alone rhymed and maple did a fantastic job with both and told a somewhat tragic story in the process, hats off to you

    Andrea, I just want to say that very few of us are gifted with poetry. You are one of them, my dear friend.

    Now this is how to write an acrostic! Well done, Maple - thoroughly enjoyed.

    Andrea, I just love this acrostic. It gives another twist to the word angelic. It really is a beautiful piece.

    City of angels, indeed.

    Such a gut-wrenching write and I feel the ache, grief and yearning for better days in this piece.

    Love you always <3
