             Acrostic    April 

Anyone who knows me

Properly will see. I am a harbinger

Rallying I set flowers and buds free

I wake up the warmer season

Lovingly I warm you with rays of sun

This is my entry for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

Today is Day 15 of Loveuary. Now to choose a prompt ? Marriage, I have added a D as poetic license because I want to do an Acrostic Nonet and that demands 9 lines and so needs  nine letters.

Marriage with a D

More than a wedding day is marriage

And vows need plenty of hard work

Rekindling love every day

Remembering to care

Igniting passion

Aging as one

Growing close

Every

Day

Elusive : Haiku

To strive  and to dream

Every minute spent in chase

Of you goal, your keen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ELUSIVE : ACROSTIC

Endlessly  chasing  those dreams

Longinly striving  it  seems

Unashamedly  fighting  your own quest

Steadily  gaining  ground  achieving  your  best

Instinctively  climbing  that  hill

Vieing   for  pole position imposing  your will

Even  now,  you know  the  elusive will be  yours .

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Elusive  Happiness : Poem

Happiness is  an elusive  thing

As rare  gossamer thread on angel wings.

Reach out  for  happiness  and  back it  springs.

Nay! It’s  not  for  you, you  human things!

CONTEMPT. Acrostic Poem

contempt

Could  there  ever  be

One  so  low  as  he

No one  ever  knew

The  contempt he  held just grew

Everyone was  below  his  care

Malicious were  the words  he’d  spare

Power  over  all he had

To shout contempt and  hit his gravel on it’s pad !

I used  to  work in  Customer Services  in a large  supermarket, I had  to deal  with  all sorts of  complaints, difficult  customers, visitors  and  queries… Not  mention  take orders  for  party  food  and  cakes  and  at  Christmas, Turkeys  and  Geese! Easy  one hand  tied  behind your  back  stuff!

Well  you  would  not  believe some of  the  daft  things   we had  to  deal  with. EG : Lady  wearing  Barbour  Jacket  and  headscarf  throws any  empty  egg carton  at  me . ” These  eggs  all cracked  when I  boiled  them ”  she screeched at  me! I  replied  that  eggs  do crack  when  they are boiled occasionally. WRONG!  I will not  bore  you  with  what  happened  next  but in  the  end I gave  her  a refund  and  another  box  of  eggs! I also had  to  smile at  her  and apologise  for  her inconvenience??

Another  day  a woman  came up  to  the  desk  and told  her  husband  had  been in  at  the weekend  and  a cashier  has been  rude  to him. I asked if she had  the receipt so I could  see which cashier  had  served him. …. Imagine  my  delight  when  she handed  me  a bill  for  a Tesco’s … I  smiled  sweetly  and  said  sorry  madam  but  the  incident  did  not happen here.

I got  thing’s  wrong  too, one  evening  we were  checking  the returns  .. ” who  dealt  with  this prepacked  Colli ” the  supervisor  asked, I said  I had. “what  did  you  do  for  the customer ” she  asked  sounding  irritated. I told her  I  had  done  as always  given her  a replacement  and a refund. She  almost  smiled. “Great , they  are  from Marks  and Spencer’s”  we  did  all chuckle !

I  won’t  go on  but  below  is  an Acrostic  Nonet   about  the  time  a man  came in  and  thrust a bunch of  flowers into my  face. ” They  don’t  smell,  they are  seven days  old  and  were guarantied for ten day. ”  … what could I  do  apart  from smile?  Yes  a  refund  and  a new bunch of  flowers!

Acrostic Nonet  Complaint.

Can you  help me  these flowers don’t smell

Only had  them seven days see

My wife’s so disappointed

Please do something for me

Let’s see what  to do

Are  you  happy

If I give

New buds

Thanks!

Impenetrable Acrostic 

I stand lost and frightened

Menace surrounds me like walls

Pacing back and forth I am trapped

Echoes of hate like foot falls

No hope left , giant rocks are all I see

Even the light is like a steel barrier

Trapped no way over no way out for me

Restless night mares hold me down

All is dark and there are no doors to see 

Barbed edges  rip my skin, keeping me down

Loneliness  has  me in  it’s hold

Everything  is impenetrable I am locked in



Just Jot it January. Spider.

So here we are on the ptescipice of a New Year. It is now that the Just Jot it January rears it’s challenging head.

         SPIDER

Sorry spider but you cannot stay

Please don’t take offense I pray

I really don’t want to moan

Do understand this is not your home

Even if you promised to behave

Really you are spoiling the peace I crave.
