Create a short story, piece of memoir, or epic poem that is 26 sentences long, in which the first sentence begins with “A” and each sentence thereafter begins with the next letter of the alphabet.
This is by far the hardest Daily Prompt. But it doesn’t hurt to give it a try, this is what this blog is for – learning and experiencing writing in other ways than my usual. No matter if it leaves a bad taste in your mouth, at least I tried…
Amazing how mother nature can be
Brilliant for everyone to see
Copiously she provides
Deserving of love she is denied
Earth is but a place we do not own
Fact is, we are guests in what we call home
Gleefully we ravage
HALT! Why are we destroying our land?
It takes courage to speak out
Just to raise awareness on our evil deeds
Know that what goes around
Later comes around
Mankind is but a passing infestation
Narcissism is our fashion
Obvious to some
Perplexing to those who cannot fathom
Quietly, ask yourself
Really, is this what I want?
Search for the kindness in your heart
Take a stroll in the park
Ultimately, you will see
Valuable treasures and beauty
Worthy but wilting
X’mas is just round the corner
You shall celebrate and
Zillion problems will await.
Thanks for reading the first ever poem I’ve written in my life. I’m not a poems person and know nothing of how they should flow and rhyme. I hope I’ve not made a fool of myself.
