Day 6 : acrostic

“What do you want to be ?” he asked, “A sheep ? A wolf ? Or a shepherd ?”

An enlightening discussion provided the so much needed inspiration for second day’s assignment in Writing 201 Poetry : Gifts. Acrostic. Simile.

Guardian of the beast,

Infant of the supreme soul,

Fighter and deliverer from unknown sins…

Treat us like children, like lost

Spirits in need of a shepherd.

Order them to blindly

Follow your blissful

Light, o luminous light,

Overwhelming aspiration to the now and

Vessel of pure, unconditional

Emotions like those of your children’s.
