Acrostic Haiku – Challenging Myself

I Love a Challenge

Some days I enjoy challenges. Today is one of those days. I’ve written a haiku-style poem in two stanzas’ using an acrostic poetry style.

Haikus, fun to write

Ambiguously exact

Interesting distinct


Kindred parallels

Understanding syllables

Searching, thinking words

We yearn for springtime

Have You Seen the Mist – Flash Fiction

Coastal Mist
Alluring softness
Brings romantic illusions
Letting mind wander
Relaxed in a jacuzzi
Sipping a fine chardonnay
After a long day
As the warm wind blows
Across the lakes hardened ice
One can see, sea mist
Appearing as clouds
Close onto ground, thick moisture
Billows blocking sight
Lighthouses warn boaters
Vision obscured volatile
Mist has unfolded
Shining brightly the
Mist from the sea causes fog
Thickly stands resting
Invitingly mist
Will mesmerize you into
A fascination
Over lakes and seas
Dawn or night you may see
The mist of the sea
Mistakenly some
Sailors have ignored warnings
Crashing into rocks

This piece was written for a flash fiction challenge over at Carrot Ranch. Write a short story or poem (99 words, no more, no less) about sea mist.
