#OctPoWriMo Cloudy Acrostic

Today is October 1st, the first day of OctPoWriMo! If you’re unfamiliar, it’s 31 days of poetry for the month of October. I’m going to attempt a new poem every day. Fortunately, there’s a prompt over there to help. I’ll be writing a few over the course of the month as well. It’s a really good time and I hope you try it out.

Today’s prompt was about clouds. I realized I haven’t taken the time to stare the clouds to see a shape since I was a child. I remember laying on the grass seeing entire menageries flash before my eyes. Shapes shifting. It was one of the few times when my friends and I were totally quiet. I’m sure our parents were glad when we’d get lost in the clouds.

Today’s suggested poetry form is acrostic. I haven’t written one since I was a kid, so it feels perfect.

Cushioned neck
Lays
On cupped hands
Under
Downy
Skies

See you tomorrow for Day 2!
