Alphabet Set

On the sunny nineteenth morning of the poetry month., we are challenged to write an abecedarian poem – a poem in which the word choice follows the words/order of the alphabet. We can choose to write a very strict abecedarian poem, in which there are twenty-six words in alphabetical order, or one in which each line begins with a word that follows the order of the alphabet. This is a prompt that lends itself well to a certain playfulness and is right up my street!

Oh Spurting One!

Always bubbly, contented despite eventual fiascos

Grateful-hearted, in jubilant koala-leaps, merrily noticing obviously present quirks

Resplendently savouring time,

Unshakable verve

Wondrous, X-factor, youthfulness

  1. It’s always fun to see how other poets deal with challenging letters like J, K, Q, V, X, and Z. I have never done one as strict as this; trying to follow the alphabet and get the poem to make sense is immensely difficult. Yet, I see your essential self captured here, koala-leaping contentedly through life, over and around fiascos and quirks. My favorite word here was “verve” which would be my one-word description of you. 🙂
