SCREAM
Splashed on to canvas the blood red sky
Come let me relate this twilight glow
Remember those times you got to the edge
Easily you could have kicked the horizon
Amateur painter that you are however
Mumblings are all escaping paintbrush lips.

  7. A brilliant acrostic. It's eerie imagining mumblings escaping paintbrush lips.

  8. This is my new favorite--an unforced acrostic! These two lines are my favorites: "Come let me relate this twilight glow
    Remember those times you got to the edge"
    OUCH. I also wrote about the act of creation that comes after the trauma.

  9. 'paintbrush lips' - wonderful image! I had to read it twice to realize it was an acrostic.

  10. Having associated with many artists over my lifetime mumbling is so apt as they talk to themselves while creating their art. No doubt I did as well but we did is quite subconsciously.

  13. That's a gem of an acrostic, Gillena. I especially love:
    'Remember those times you got to the edge
    Easily you could have kicked the horizon'
    and
    'Mumblings are all escaping paintbrush lips'.
