Dancing out of green space,
A sun, then more and more.
New for a day, and soon
Dreamy husks with wispy puffballs,
Each one – perfect to make a wish on.
Like all good wishes, they float away
In the warm/cool breezes of spring,
Out into the world like a silent prayer.
Nature’s masters of survival,
Seeding our landscapes with starry wonder.
Here is a great book by Paul Paolilli and Dan Brewer to teach students how to write acrostic poetry.
