Postcard View--By Paul Callus--Malta

Postcard View (Acrostic)

Proudly she stands on slopes covered in snow
One graceful woodland deer her eyes aglow
She strikes a pose unmoving, head held high
Twitching her ears as flapping birds go by.
Catching the light of early morning sun
Across the stream reflected colours run.
Right by the lake the drifting mist lies low
Deliberating: should it stay or go?

Voraciously I feast on nature’s fare
Intense the bliss which fills my heart and soul
Ethereal the mood that tempts to share
With my obliging muse...she makes me whole.

Paul Callus is a Maltese author who writes both in Maltese and English. He has contributed to several anthologies. Apart from poetry he writes lyrics for songs and has published two books, one a story book aimed at children (related to his experience as a teacher) and a historical book based on research.

    You did an excellent job on this acrostic. It is hard to make them rhyme, but you did it so well.

  6. Very astute writing Paul, all from a "Postcard View"
    You are very sharp. The details you exact from
    a card, makes me wish I'd paid more attention
    When I had real live views. Thanks for
    sharing this precious Jewel
