Keeping with tradition, our finale piece of the April Write 2013 will be a Word Power challenge. However, unlike the previous Word Power exercise, these words will be chosen by you.

ImageIn order to do this, we need a word or words which currently describe or sum up your experience of this month, which we will all then use to create our finale April 2013 write with.

So, your task if you should accept it, is to add your word/s below or like the ones which have been added by others and I will let you know on the 30th which words will be used for the finale challenge. ~ Marina

APRIL WRITE 2013 – Day 22 – ACROSTIC: LIGHT A CANDLE

Posted on

Welcome to Day 22 of the April Write 2013: a new era begins

In different traditions the act of lighting a candle has symbolised a number of different things thought time: gratefulness, thanks, energy, hope and remembrances, to name a few. I have chosen this topic for today or a number of reasons: firstly, in remembrance of the 2 Butterflies whom I have lost, who inspired and encouraged me to ‘just do me’ as I was enough. Secondly, because of a message of thanks sent to me simply because I posted a thought for the day upon a page. Finally, because of a close friend who has just lost the physical presence of her father and at the time I had no words. Lighting a candle is for me one of those simple but powerful and sacred acts.

The style of poem I am asking you to do today reflects my first formal introduction to poetry in primary school; an acrostic poem is where the first letter of each line going down spells a word. 

So, your challenge for today is an acrostic poem and the phase for the poem is:

Light a Candle
