I am a poet, writer, and blogger. I write things, most days, sometimes just comments on Facebook, or Tweets on things that interest me in various ways. This exploration of Stoicism, has remained poetry free, up until now but I’m obviously feeling creative today, in poetic ways.
So, after writing and posting a poem to my Writing Blog here, I have now written another new poem for the day, and it is an Acrostic Poem, based on Stoicism, the actual word, and some of my thoughts about it. I hope you will read the poem, and let me know what you think about it.
If you don’t know, an Acrostic poem is one that has the letters of a particular word or phrase as the first letters of a poem. It is usually a poem that has that particular word as the content of the poem. If this explanation is a little confusing, I’m sure (or at least I hope) reading the poem will add to understanding.
Here is my new Poem, all about Stoicism:
An Acrostic of Stoicism
So, from two thousand years
To come to the fore again now …
Of importance to us now, surely,
In these greedy selfish times.
Can ancient Greek and Roman ways
Increase our chances of survival,
So humans live for two thousand
More years on this planet?
