Alphabets speak..

P  O  E  T  R  Y 
P is Poignant yet Polite and oh so Proud oh himself 
seems a Passionate Prudent Person just like me.
Living happily in his own Paradise
I live with these traits. 
No wonder even my name starts with a P ! 
O is Obese but Omnipresent though. 
Opulent, full with everything in his belly with eyes like an Owl.
The big O shouts out like an Orate Orgasm.
She is Out with Ornaments loud, 
She is Orthodox and thus moves Only in her Own circle. 
E is so Eldritch and Eerie he has no End.
an Enigma in itself 
holding Euphoric Energies within 
ready to Engulf with two mouths open.
Exuberating with Escaping Eagerness 
 T is This and That 
Well Trained thus Tantalizing Tall it stands 
Thin and Trim yes but a Tenacious core 
No, not Timid at all 
Stands Tall just like The Time to Thank one and all
 R with one leg pointing out, she is always ready to Run 
Resilient it look Ruthless and Rugged 
She tried once enRolling for a Race then gave up altogether 
because of her pointing leg so straight. 
 Y yippee you ask me why not the noodles 
Why not ! 
He is Yappy and Yawning with his mouth perpetually open 
Second from the bottom he is amongst the last benchers
Yodeling a prayer to stay Young forever.

Day 23 

Today’s prompt (optional, as always) asks you to write a poem about a particular letter of the alphabet, or perhaps, the letters that form a short word. Doesn’t “S” look sneaky and snakelike? And “W” clearly doesn’t know where it’s going! Think about the shape of the letter(s), and use that as the take-off point for your poem.
