G ifts come like an eagle’s flight
R arely anticipated or without surprise
A gift can come in many forms
T alking, presence, just being there
I have been the lucky one
T ruly comforting to know
U nderstanding and compassion ‘bound
D o you know I think of you
E ach and every day, my friends
My very first poetry acrostic. How fun was this!
Especially in the last two years I have been the recipient of many eagles’ flights. There are many kind and generous people in my life. Thanks to all of you! You revealed in me my true worth.
There’s a whole array of sensations and emotions attached to gifts, whether you’re the gifter or the giftee. The tension between packaging and contents, the joy of tearing through layers of wrapping, the surprise or disappointment of discovery once you know what’s inside.
Today’s form: acrostic
Acrostics at a glance: An acrostic is any poem in which the first (or last) letters of each line combine to spell out a word or a phrase, or follow the order of the alphabet.
