Acrostic Poems - Poem by Valsa George


E-arth shudders on its hinge
A-ll experience that terrific punch
R-oads crack and traffic stops
T-remors rock and havoc wreaks
H-orror strikes and rubble heaps
Q-uest to save the trapped turns in vain
U-nder the rubble, men scream in pain
A-fter shocks and seismic waves,
K-illing thousands, the disaster leaves.
E-ngulfing gloom swallows the Earth
S-ky high dreams, shattered in death!


G-hastly noises heard around
H-aunted houses with thickets surround
O-ld castles where mysteries abound
S-tarved faces greatly confound
T-errible bats worse than hounds


S-trong and swift the wind blows
T-wirling and twisting delicate blooms
O-rchards strewn with fruits- ripe n' raw
R-ain and thunder snarl and growl
M-aking the sea suddenly shriek and howl.

    Hounds of Ghost may terrific to my ear
    G-hastly noises heard around
    H-aunted houses with thickets surround
    O-ld castles where mysteries abound
    S-tarved faces greatly confound
    T-errible bats worse than hounds

    Whether we see ghost or not it is very mysterious to know about it. Here you have so incisively inscribed about ghost in an acrostic.

    The symptoms of storm have been impressively painted here. All three parts of the poem are beautiful.10

    When earthquakes come our earth shudders roads crack, rubble creates heap where men scream in pain and after
    shocks and seismic waves many people meet the death. All these events and pitiful picturesque have been so touchingly inscribed through acrostic form.

    The beauty of acrostic poems has thus been well envisaged.
    It is nice that your ghost has found his/her place between the earthquake and the storm!
    I am awaiting the tale of a good ghost pale in look and cast in a weak frame loitering around the castles of the man yet to die.

    Well done dear friend, yes we have to kneel and accept the supremacy of mother Nature over humans. We are doing much more harm to her than she is doing to us when in anger. Let's hope will come a day for us we can understand and treat our mother fairly well. (Report) Reply
