    This game can be tough! Write an acrostic using the letters of your name (real name, user name, nickname or any name you want) that tells something about yourself. An acrostic is when the first letter of each line, when read downward, spells out a word or phrase. In this case the word that reads down will be your name. Example:

    Tree (my real name)(I am a Mohawk woman)

    Traditional Mohawk beliefs include
    Respect for the
    Environment and all who dwell on Mother
    Earth.

    Phenomenally I do see that the
    Artform called "Writing"
    Is what connects us Intricately
    Not only does Writing occur on this Forum, but also good friendships
    This is what I see, a beautiful Forum, thanks to Ms Jacquii
    Everyone has a stanza, reminiscent of a soliloquy, perhaps a mystical
    Diary, under lock and key

    Devotion to Writing, Piano, NASA Researcher, Mentoring, Teaching, Science, and Art
    Is what I am, as well as Lecturing at the University
    Also, I paint people's diaries, prismatic Skittle Rainbow hues, topped off with Calligraphy
    Rare is this uncut black diamond's category, and
    Yours truly, in a small way, is a masterpiece, whom my "Architect of Poetry" calls Kimmy!;):wub:


    Thanks for this Tree, had a lot of fun!

    Painted Diary;
    WOW! That was fantastic! Vowel lines can be tough but you handled them beautifully! I see that I am going to be learning a lot by reading your works. Thank-you so much for posting!

    Patrick Henry Page

    Pat is what some called him
    and make no mistake he was cool
    the problem was that him and his father fought 24/7
    really this guy had been military police himself & wasn't scared no po po
    it was said that he had a BIGKNIFE a big ass KNIFE when po po was called
    cuss him and my grandfather got into it again
    Killed by one of the five bullets

    How unjust that the police department said that it was just
    even Ray Charles could see that
    no way was this necessary
    really the thing is you never believe that something like that would happen
    You would not believe how I felt......mostly numb not knowing what to feel

    People beware
    all people do not have hatred in their heart i used to
    god has got me through and I am so grateful
    eternity of love is what I see now....... Its all good to eternity

    Great job you did with this! Love how you summarized everything in the last name. I've never tried a long name like this - was it difficult? Also like the way your love for this man comes shining through your facts. Thanks for posting!

    Thanks Tree

    The length of the name was a little challenging at first. But after I got into it
    I thought okay this is a good way for me to be creative in my writing. Cool game. Also this whole thing has been bottled up in me for awhile. So It's good for me to just say whenever I can Hey this was my dad even though him and my mom broke up and all that stuff. Yo the strong Men keep getting stronger. As well as the strong women keep getting stronger.

    I've never written an acrostic... so, this is what I got in the last 10 minutes, while you were playing "simon" Aunt Tree, LOL! What do you think?

    Serenity
    So I'm a little rough around the
    Edges. That's okay with me,
    Really. It's hard to be smooth when
    Every day is a fresh obstacle, every
    Night a new wave of despair.
    If wishes would only come
    True, then maybe I could understand
    You, and you would see into me.

    HI SWEETHEART, TREE!! Thank you for the New Thread!! I like it!! You see... I love this site, the JPiC Forum!! I am back, as long as this computer functions and my health is good. No Problem!! If I travel, I would always be back again...I´ll be traveling back to the States, in 2007. OK!! I am abroad at this point in my life, doing some Research Work Out in the Field. I am a Conservationist of Our Natural Environment and the Wildlife, among other things I do. I dream of other many different good Projects for the future!!.. I have never written an ACROSTIC IN MY LIFE!! So, this is a real CHALLENGE for me...Mr. Alan Douglas has written one with my name here. It is STARDUST.
    She is about, of
    That there´s no doubt
    All sprinkly and fine
    Result of Star shine
    Desired by all
    Upon us she´ll fall
    She is our "must"
    That brilliant STARDUST.

    As soon as I get an Acrostic of my own, I shall post it here, dear Tree. Hugs. Sincerely, Stardust.:bye: :bye:

    I wish I hadn't had a "z" in my name. by the way, that's pronounced "Zed", not "Zee". And MetricalSonneteer, I love your sig.

    -Amzy.

    Aimlessly drifting through life
    Motivation failing me
    Zig zagging avoiding strife
    Yielding to melancholy


    Ardently I persue
    My passions and my dreams
    Zero in on life anew
    You see my karma gleams

    Nice reply AMZ! You did it twice, is that Amzy past and Amzy present? BTW - You handled those ZEDS beautifully, eh!
    LYL,
    Aunt Tree.

    Hey Starry!
    I think posting someone elses poem is plagiarism. LOL! It really is not difficult - give it a try! I'd love to see what you can come up with. You don't have to use Stardust, you can use Monica or if you just want to do a short one, how about writing one about your husband, Paul?

    Thanks, Tree. Glad you liked. They are not past and present, and I am not one or the other. I am both, and then some, all at once. These are omnipresent descriptions existing in a quantum state.

    HI DEAR TREE!! OK!! I´ll give it a try... This is the first Acrostic in my life. I am going to write my first Acrostic for my dearest daughter CINDY. She lives in New York. She is happily married and has 2 children, my grandchildren. I miss them so much!! So, here it is my Acrostic for her.
    Charming child of mine:
    I love you so dearly!!
    Never, I shall leave you, for what you are always on my mind.
    Darling dear, I would like to be so near:
    You, forever and until the end of my time.

    Send you all my loving and caring, sweet Tree!! Sincerely, Stardust.
    I´ll try another one, some other time. Bye for now, dear.:ok: :ok:
