Pruntiform

• Pruntiform is a recent invented acrostic form created by Randy Prunty in which the words of the first line of the poem are sequentially the first word of each subsequent line. The structure of the poem is at the discretion of the poet.

You can also use the title of a book, movie or poem (with 3 or more words in the title), begin each line of your poem with the sequential words from the title. The subject could describe the book etc named or it could be about anything. The frame of the verse is at the discretion of the poet.

Unnoticed by Judi Van Gorder

Water does not remove the stain
For it is deep and indelible.
Elephants dance in the attic.

An Unfinished Life

An opportunity exists each day to address
Unfinished work, in getting on with
Life.
