A Day for Discovery (An Abecedarian Poem)
Encouraged by my friend Susan Trestrail's blog post about ABECEDARIAN poetry yesterday, I decided to give this form a try. In an abecedarian poem, one uses all of the letters of the alphabet to begin each line of the poem.
If you click on the link to Susan's blog, you will see several poems of some very gifted writers there. You might want to try this yourself. It has been a fun form to try.
before the sun
comes up, I have a sense of wonder, of
eager to see what the
future of this day holds for me. I
gently disturb the quiet of the
house with candlelight and music,
joy and contentment into my heart.
Keeping steady my promise of
living fully each moment, and giving gratitude for
my gifts. I find myself
pleasures as I keep my
quiet traditions of whispered prayers and written words,
rituals of the morning that
tone for my day.
Unbelievable blessings encourage me to keep my
vow of discovery, staying busy as I
you, Sweet Man to return to me, as the sun sets on this glorious day.
