Writer's Workshop: ABCs of ME

On to the Reindeer game! Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop chosen prompt:
2.) Write a 26-line poem using all the letters of the alphabet, where the first line starts with the letter "A," the second "B," the third "C," etc., culminating with the final line starting with "Z."

ABCs of ME


But well known

Cunning and never

Deceptively thrown

Elegant while spinning

Farce and fiction alike

Goddess of house and

Home and mike.

Injured reserve and

Jaded, no less

Killing me softly

Letting me confess

My thoughts, nay my dreams

Never brought to light

Oh, how I wish

Paupers no fright.

Queue up for the game

Realize your limit

Surprise yet again

Turn around and spin it.

Uniformity unmasked

Virtual gazes

Wishing for yet more and more

X-ray phrases.

Yelling and screaming and finding no solace

Zipping through life with too many causes.


(Because I’m an overachiever with poetry)





Dangled his


Foot, just above the

Gurgling pond.

He heard



Klink, then







Rearing up and

Steady, our

Tired bear

Undid the bracelet of

Violets he

Wore. Then, an

X-tra wide

Yawn, he

Look at you!! Those are favorite was the first one. I can't believe how much information you were able to compact into such a short poem. Goddess of Mike, I applaud you.

So creative! I like "elegant while spinning". This looks like a fun game to try. I think I'll share your second bear poem with my kids. I know they will enjoy it :)
