An acrostic poem

By Robbie CheadlePublished 4 months ago 1 min read
Picture caption: Leopard in a Tree, charcoal drawing by Robbie Cheadle

Drawing focuses my agitated mind

Inspiration flows in a continuous stream

Sating my brain which ceases to whirl

Thoughts, dark and foreboding, stop

Running down like an old clock

Apprehension rises in a vapour cloud

Condensing into peaceful calm

Tantalising ideas slowly crystalise

Into solid lines and perceptible forms

Ordinary life loosens its formidable grip

Necessary release from relentless stress

By Robbie Cheadle
