Living Loving Laughing

Living Loving Laughing

A Poem by William Michael Reeves
"

Triple feature of Acrostic poetry

"
Life is a film
I star myself
View an actor
I think is me
No lines to read
Given no script.

Love is a show
Of trust and hope
Viewing our hearts
In scenes of life
Now watching us
Give each other.

Laugh at yourself
Acting your role
Under study
Gets the best parts
Happy to be
In your movie
Now we're showing
Getting it right!

Author's Note

William Michael Reeves
In an Acrostic poem the first letter of each line spells out a word. Kind of fun. Write down the word you want then stare at it awhile.

This was really fun to read.... and what is better in life than living, loving and laughing....the essence of us all...I love the first line of each stanza and I get how you create it.. then use it in scenes of a movie, a show ,etc. well done.

I tried writing a few of these years back but they didn't have the fluidity to them I wanted. You did a great job with this. Nothing here sounds forced or contrived.

An enjoyable read with a splash of wisdom.

Beautiful job, my friend! Nobody does these anymore. And this is truly classy. Well done, Sir. Wise sentiments expressed very nicely.

Clever piece....I have written several of these and they are fun.

There was a time several years ago when a couple people started writing them and then they really caught on...
besides Haiku and Senryu...about the only form I tinkered with...but I started finding them too forced.

I don't feel this one is...it sneaks up on us and I really like that.
