#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRYCHALLENGE #POETSCHOICE @SyllabicPoetry @ColleenChesebro #Acrostic
Hi everyone! Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge and have written an Acrostic verse. An Acrostic poem is a form not requiring rhyme, but requiring letters or words to form word(s) or messages when read from consecutive lines.
You can find Colleen’s post HERE.
This week’s challenge is poet’s choice with no prompt to follow.
This poem is inspired from my own recent difficulties when venturing out on my mobility scooter and the news today that an Israeli Minister was unable to attend the COP26 due to a lack of accessibility. The word formed at the start of each line forms ‘Disabled’.
Inadvertent or deliberate?
Sad in this day and age
Alone and marginalised still
Because of things not our fault
Less able doesn’t mean
Deftly different, more like
