A Poem by Shalini Dinesh (Poet's World)

An acrostic poem in the form "abcd....z"


As I lay leisurely on ma bed,

Beckoning my hubby to come near,
Carefully showing him the bird,
Decorated in bright colors,
Elegant looks,
Furious while the catching the prey,
Gesturing him to watch the bird
Hiding from behind the window,
Ink blue colored bird flew from the tree,
Jetted in high speed towards the pond,
King in fishing, ah ha should admit!
Lowering from its height,
Made its way, sweeping in the water,
Noticed a shiny silvery fish,
Opening its beak, it sailed swiftly,
Penetrating its beak into the water,
Quick and easily catching its prey,
Rushing away from the place,
Splashing water all around,
Tripping up in the air
Using its feathery wings, it flew high,
Vividly coloring a picture in ones mind
With a memory that will never forget
Xanthic orangish colored breast and belly,
Yelling in satisfaction were its sharp eyes,
Zeal to achievement of catching a fish!

I enjoyed this poem and appreciate the difficulty with making the alphabet into a poem, having done one myself. Beautiful job!

Very artistic.. beautiful poem of a beautiful bird.. you did an amazing job on this alphabet acrostic.. you make it look so easy and effortless to write but it would take much to write something like this .. a beautiful poem.
