Over the last three weeks, I have been systematically rewriting a double acrostic, linking the two words, ‘Choreographing’ and ‘Transformation’. Change fascinates me, and embodying change is both difficult and rewarding.

Rewriting is not something I do often. I’m afraid of losing spontaneity; but in fact, these are not reviews of the same message. Every day, I have a different perspective on change.

Here is a sensory acrostic to start you off – I’ll be interested to hear your comments:

As you can see, for a double acrostic, you need to link two words with the same number of letters. These two each have fourteen, which is a gratifying number for a poet. I don’t know precisely what it is about the composition of a sonnet that makes this length so satisfactory. If you have any suggestions, please comment.

Also, if you have any ideas of other pairs of words you would like me to link up, feel free to let me know. I’ll endeavour to turn them round in 24 hours.

    This is the work of a skilled wordsmith. I am imprressed with both the form and the content of your poems.

    Just for fun, here are two words for you to try your hand with:

    Hi Michael

    It doesn’t seem to want to accept my justification. I can email you the image.
    Hope this makes sense. It has expanded my vocabulary anyhow!
