Lauren Faulkenberry

LaurenI’m a writer and book artist currently living in North Carolina (US). I published a children’s book in 2002, but currently write novels and shorts stories. Under the imprint of Firebrand Press, I made limited edition handmade books that are letterpress printed. I’ve always loved books and illustration, and have combined my love of writing and image-making in artists books. My books are held in a variety of Special Collections libraries both nationally and internationally. I currently work for the National Park Service and travel to conduct printmaking and book arts workshops.

Assignment 3 – Blogging U 201 – Poetry – Acrostic, Trust, Internal Rhyme

I must apologize to my friend followers and those I visit regularly for not popping by or commenting on your posts.  I have been so focused on writing poetry, which I struggle with as if shedding my own skin,  I have not maintained my social graces.  This morning,  so intent on writing,  I let an important appointment slip my mind.   Ooops.

Anyway to get on with the post.  Here is my offering for assignment #3 – Acrostic on Trust with an Internal Rhyme.   The internal rhyme is not as subtle as I would like, but it is there.

Trust in Yourself

 

Touch a match to the torch

Restrain the stain of shadows insane

Undulating in the corners.

Sustain the light of truth

Through the pain of the darkness.
