zeal for verse.
Seven days, seven posts, that’s what the Write Tribe Festival of Words is about. Oh, and the theme is “Seven” as well. I thought what do I do, and then I thought some more, and I was about to give up when a random idea discussed through a phone call kind of stuck, and the thought (and writing) block was broken. What I’m going to do, in these seven days, is write seven poems in seven forms of poetry that I love to write.
This isn’t exactly the perfect example perhaps, but the form today is an experimental form of Acrostic poetry, named as ABCderian Poetry or Alphabet Acrostic. As the name indicates, it has 26 lines, each line beginning with the corresponding letter of the English alphabet. It needn’t rhyme, it doesn’t have syllable patterns either. It should have 26 lines, the first line beginning with A, the second with B and so on, till the 26th line, that starts with Z.
The word Xenial means hospitable.
