Acrostic Poems

I have written three acrostic poems with three words surrounding the world's current status dealing with the virus COVID-19. Living. Isolated. Lockdown. My deep thoughts expressed through a different form of poetry.

An acrostic is a poem in which the first letter of each line spells out a word or message. The word comes from the French acrostiche from post-classical Latin acrostichis, from Koine Greek.


L oud heartbeats intubate.

I solated populations populate.

V indictive thrashings stab.

I ndividual incomes return.

N ecessary accommodations low.

G overnmental apparatus grins.


I solated consciousnesses evolve.

S ensitive individuals solo.

O nline discussions abrupt.

L azy nothings obscure.

A wful whipers blow.

T rue variances divide.

E xcited whispers murmur.

D eepest solitudes rise.


L ong rest leep.

O ppressive calms shake.

C ontrolled studies discuss.

K een walls discover.

D elightful insides consult.

O ccasional peeks decrypt.

W eekly readings check.

N arrow perimeters patrol.

Happy Reading!
