Game Day – March

I’m a Word Nerd, and as such, I love playing word games. Words with Friends, Boggle with Friends, UpWords, Taboo, Scattegories, Bananagrams, Scrabble. I even keep a crossword puzzle by my place at the table, so I always have some word fun to work on.

So for our Game Day today, I thought we could stretch our Word Nerd muscles and with some acrostics.

To play, create a poem or sentence where each word starts with the first letters of the two words below.

SPRING READS

You can use both words or just one. This is for fun, so we’re going light on the rules. Your sentence or poem should explore a place or experience that fits the theme of Spring Reads.

For example, I pictured taking a walk through beautiful spring blossoms.

Sunny
Park
Road
In
Nature
Going
Round
Enjoying
Audiobook
Delivered
Sound.

Enter your acrostic in the comments to be entered to win a Spring Reads Prize of fun reader socks and the winner’s choice of one of my three most recent books.
Have fun!

  2. Somewhere, the birds cry over the wind beaten cliffs,
    poignant and afraid, where they beautifully sing,
    reminiscing the times gone by with the winds’ whiffs.
    In all the land of goodness there was never one,
    never one to truly love strong after all they’ve become,
    gone were the coy lovers that bore refuge on these rocks,
    reeled away by the dawn lights and their families like hawks.
    Evermore does the sky now weep,
    and when the shepherds rear their sheep,
    doth the sea churns in enteral anger,
    swearing to protect every coy lover with every anchor.

    hehe, I was feeling inspired x

  4. SPRING READS

    Special Planting Requires Intense Nurturing Ground, Raking Even A Delicate Seedling.

  5. Somewhere, probably Rhode Island, new gardeners read every anthology describing seedlings.

    • I hear you, Trixi. I think we are getting close to having this beast under control. I got to spend last weekend with my daughter who lives 5 hours away. It was soooo good to see her in person.

  14. Somewhat warmer weather
    Permits more time outdoors
    Reading out in nature
    Indoors less and less
    Nightime is extended
    Grilling season too
    Reading on the porch or patio
    Evenings free of bugs
    Always one more chapter
    Delivering the plot
    Sweet endings to savor as the sunsets

  15. Senses
    Pricked
    Reading
    In the warmer
    Nights,
    Going to sleep
    Remembering the
    Excitement of visiting
    A new world &
    Dreaming about
    Soaking up the characters’ lessons.

  17. Songs of birds
    Praising God.
    Rising sunshine
    In my eyes.
    New life showing
    God’s handiwork.

    Ready for the day.
    Energized by the Word.
    Admitting my need of Him.
    Daring to live for Him.
    Sharing my life with Him.
