Hawthorne, acrostic version

Hawthorne in the morningHawthorne in the morning

Once again, I was reading Laura Purdie Salas on poetry Friday, and she wrote about acrostic poems. I haven’t written very many of these that weren’t aimed at defining vocabulary words for my students, but I was looking for a structure that would help me write about Hawthorne, our new baby African Pygmy Hedgehog — the first pet our family has been able to have beyond our thr

“Let's stay up all night,' Kat whispers. 'Let's wait for the moon to kiss the morning star.”
Elissa Janine Hoole, Kiss the Morning Star

I used to believe in so many things—elves and leprechauns, virgins riding unicorns. I trusted that the world was made up of people who were generally good, though they may have lost their way temporarily. The faith my mother gave me—the words she whispered when she said good night, the idea that gave me hope for the two of us even when we fought bitterly over trivial things, as mothers and daughters do, I guess—was her belief in love, a love so unconditional we could barely scratch at the edges of comprehending it.
Elissa Janine Hoole, Kiss the Morning Star

“I spin in the trail to face Kat, who raises her own walking stick to meet mine.
‘A duel to the death?’ Kat says, giggling.
I laugh, too, and we spar for a moment playfully until Kat gently presses the tip of her stick into my chest. ‘On your knees and beg for mercy.’
Oh, god. This feels silly and dangerous at the same time. I kneel. I look up at Kat, beautiful and fierce standing there with the setting sun in her hair and her face so stern. Only her eyes are full of mirth. I stare.
‘Close your eyes, prisoner.’
I giggle stupidly, my heart leaping at the point of her stick.
‘Close your eyes. And stop laughing.’
I try to obey, shaking a little.
Katy moves her makeshift lance to my neck, pressing gently. ‘Close em.’
I close my eyes, serious at last. There is a long silence, and I feel genuinely vulnerable for a moment, as though Kat really does have a sword to my neck. Then I feel the stick come down gently and touch each of my shoulders.
‘I… dub… thee… mine,’ says Kat softly. ‘Sealed with a kiss.’ The stick falls to the forest floor behind her. She kneels down in front of me and touches my face with both hands. It’s all I can do to stay here, to be here, to hold still.”
