Acrostic Poem Meme

Berry, Berry, quite contrary...

I can hear all the groans and moans already, LOL! I TOLD you it was going to be a tricky one this week. I got this idea because I do this often with my students. They are very simple and easy and don’t need to rhyme or make any sense at all (just like Haikus). I figured since so many people had fun with the Haikus, you guys might also like this one. I did struggle a bit because I felt it was difficult to describe myself in the poem, so I asked another one of my bratty friends for help, and they did, which I’ll share later in this post.

Before we go any further, let me explain the Acrostic. An Acrostic Poem is a poem in which the first letter of each line spells out a word. It’s something I’m sure you did as a child and probably had a lot of fun with it. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy doing one for your SL name or anything to do with your SLife. I even did one for “Second Life” and I’d love to see people do that as well and express how they feel about it.

I used the ReadWriteThink’s Acrostic Poems website which helped me a lot to get it all organized and then I ended up saving the file from there and exporting it into an image file. If you are having trouble coming up with a poem on your own, you can be a total cheater and use the Acrostic Poem Generator which actually writes one for you. I used that for my name as well and will share that later too.

Meme instructions: Write an acrostic poem(s) using your Second Life name or any word describing your Second Life. Remember to leave your link in this meme’s comments so others can come by and read your poem(s) as well!

This is a poem I wrote myself and used the Acrostic Poems Website to type it out and save it:
Acrostic Poem: Berry

This is a poem I wrote myself about “Second Life”
Acrostic Poem: Second Life

This one I cheated and used the Acrostic Poem Generator:
B is for Beautiful, simply breathtaking
E is for Elegant, an effortless style
R is for Ravishing, an entrancing beauty
R is for Reflective, always thoughtful
Y is for Yummy, so delectable

And finally, I asked a friend to help me when I was stuck yesterday so this is what the bratty Mr. Prad Prathivi wrote for me:
Balanced between her full red lips,
Earrings of gold and platinum pips,
Randomly she swallows it whole,
Rectally she passes it so,
Yet today it’s in her earlobe hole.

You probably won’t get his poem unless you are on my plurk timeline and have been paying attention to my ridiculous life. I wasn’t going to share what happened with me on the blog in detail, but I figured his poem needs to be explained, so you can learn all about it at this link. I think what I hate about it the most is that it’s so much more poetic than mine, LOL! So thank you Prad for your help even though I hate your guts! :P <3 So that's the meme for today. I hope you guys participate, I think it can be fun. Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years.

    Tall and tan and young and lovely?
    Ipanema is far from here
    She is short and dark and scruffy
    Her charm lies deeper than veneer

    If you don’t know the song Girl from Ipanema, you’re lost with this one I guess. And no, in case you wonder, I don’t think I’m that charming at all. I just struggled to get a closing statement begining with H!

  19. Hey there. Wanted to reply more to your note on my blog but not sure you are signed up to see comments — soooooo

    Indeed the speediness of my rantings has much to do with practice. There is of course a creative part, but doing anything over and over again usually gets us faster. A decade ago or so I spent each morning at a site I believe was poetry.com (that is not the same site any longer by the way. Much changed and most likely not the same folks.)

    Anyway each day there would be a selection of words to use in a poem. The words were all on virtual scraps of paper and you would dig around and drag them into an area and make a poem. It was quite creative, much fun and a good way to wake up with the day.

    I did that for many months — maybe a year, I don’t remember. The site then seemed to be a bit of a con as they would pick out poems and then publish them in a book and you could buy the book at a big price. I, of course, didn’t go for that. Fame doesn’t need to be on paper and I am a cheap gal.

    Anyway, that’s the backstory or at least part of it. I wrote songs before my poetry on the web bit and I have always jotted down musings. Many have been published.

    So, again. Practice makes ya faster. That’s the info :D.

  20. Thank you Chic, too bad that site is no longer like that anymore. That sounds like it would have been a fun thing to play around with.

    Thanks everyone for your poems this week. I had a lot of fun reading them. This week’s meme is already up, you can find all of them at this link:
