Shadow Poetry (Double Acrostic)
Summers’ gifts of sensational feelings,
Heaping happiness in poets’ path
Awarding praises for poetic data
Doses of episodes, where lived
Original thoughts; orgasmic tempo
Weavers of words; morning’s dew
Prosing spewing from every lip
Operetta unions, written in solo
Energy of many, sharing love
Tears touching every heart
Rivalry forgotten, visions clear
You and I spreading peace and joy
