Florida, Here I Come!

On Monday, I’ll be traveling to Jupiter to visit my brother. I’ll be there for a week, and I can’t wait to get away from winter in Wyoming for a while. The last time I visited my brother in Florida was several years ago, and I had a great time. The trip inspired two poems. The first was posted here. The second one I’ll paste below. This is an acrostic poem. If you look at the first letter of each line, you’ll note that they spell “Florida.” Enjoy!




Favorable weather in January

leads to basking on sunny beaches,

or swimming in one’s own pool,

reading a book on the patio

in the shade, caressed by a cool breeze,

dining on hot dogs at a tropical island in the midst of

alligators.  It’s better than winter in Wyoming.

You can write an acrostic poem. Pick a word, any word. It can be a noun, adjective, adverb, or verb. It should probably be something that has meaning in your life. Write a poem containing as many lines as there are letters in the word with each line starting with these letters as shown above. Please feel free to share your work below.
