The Fabric of Life

Exploring the fabric of life with an acrostic poem.


In White Sweaters and Blue Jeans…


Wax and wane, without worry

Healing holding headstands

Idling in idiosyncrasies

Taking turnpikes, tomorrow

Extol edits and extirpate edicts



Soothing sweaters, so Swedish

Writing words, writing, writing, writing

Enthused in extraordinary extracts

Aftershocks and aftershave

Thinking of Tuscany

Eengaging extroverts

Realizing revealing revelations

Sliding sorrows



Afternoons and afterglow

Norbert nuzzles nordic nymphs, nonsense

Daydreaming Dante / Danube dandelions / discriminating dashing, dang dastardly daredevils



Butterscotch with butterflies

Lullabies that lull leaving lugubrious lore

Understanding upturns

Eden with Eddy



Joyfully jumping, jamming Jack Flash

Establishing edgy edition

Absolute abandonment into absurd abstracts

Nurturing with nutty nutmeg/ nullifying nuisances

Soul-searching for songbirds / say soundcheck souffle



Thanks for reading!

Namasté, Leah J 🕊
