Of her enjoyment writing acrostics:  'Though I love to find increasingly complex ways to write acrostics, I also love the simplicity of the idea. I hope my poem encourages readers to experiment with this form as well."

Long Line of Horizon  

 

Catherine Zickgraf CVR Long Line of Horizon

Cover: Rising Up Dawn

by Lauri Burke 

 

(2)

Long ago mornings, the whole world
falling beside her ear in drips of dawn
and leaf-breeze, birds filled the trees,
all things sang according their nature.

Acrostic Joy

 
 
 
Cover: 'Conception Mandala'
by Lauri Burke
Acrostic Joy

The joy of inner peace—
like fathoming ocean.
We are years of light
from the soul of the sun.

Opening Selection

Acrostic Joy

The joy of inner peace—
like fathoming ocean.
We are years of light
from the soul of the sun.

The joy of inner peace—

Through Heaven’s Evening,
Journeying On Years Of Future Ideas,
Night Narrows Every Road,
Pauses Every Aching Current’s Electricity.
