Hello deviants!

Lucky number week 7 here at deviant365!:la:

Last week, we asked you to give an insight to your artistic approach and/or themes that you showcase in your work. DecepticonFlamewar completed the task and has received 80:points: from phoenixleo, and a feature on the main page!


DecepticonFlamewar is a great writer who has been on deviantART for just over 2 years!:la: She is an admin in many groups including dA-Junkies, Art-Academy-Users, and Poketopia. Take a look at her amazing gallery!:dummy:


This week, we are asking you to do acrostic poems! An  acrostic poem, is where I give you a word, and you have to use each of the letters from the word as the first letter in each line. The poem you create should have to do with the word you are given for the poem. For example, my word is cat:

Clever, these felines are;
Amazing jumps, leaps, and hops.
They love to be the brightest star.

Valentines day is coming up this Friday, so our words will be related to that topic!:love: Choose as many or as few words as you want from this list, and do an acrostic poem with it!:boogie:

  • Love

  • Candy

  • Red

  • Cupid

  • Fourteen


Keep in mind that the poem itself does not have to be Valentines day related, it just has to be related to the word you are making it off of.;) You may use any style of poetry, as long as you follow the basic rules of an acrostic poem.:nod:

Bullet; BlueMake an acrostic poem based a word given.
Bullet; Blue All entries must be submitted by Thursday, February 13th at 11:59:59pm PDT
Bullet; Blue One winner will receive a week long feature on IceXDragon's, and deviant365's profile page, and a mention in next week's task!:eager:

Have fun, and have a fantastic week!

Cuddly at a glance
Untimely romance
Poised to strike
I aim for your
Derrière

Rosy bed upon thy cheek
Every word he ever
Did speak

From each year that passes
Or day that goes by
Until the end of time
Remember
Those days
Even though
Everyone
Never does.

Chocolate
And
Nougat
Delight
You

Ohh.:lol:

But some people like longer onesies.:noes:

Obviously I didn't like it when I have so many assignments, lab work, and stuff to do and wasn't getting enough sleep this week. But now it looks okay. :grump:

*grumble grumble*

Ahh.:noes: Running on little sleep is really stressful, especially if you have a lot of work to do.:nuu:
I hope next week is better!:meow:

First you said it's only candy
over and over
until I wasn't sure why it mattered whether it was or it wasn't
red wrappers surrounding the floor, like little droplets of guilt
the look on your face as you unstuck your sticky hands
everything to be proud of
emaciated from the stick figure league of carbon copy cut outs
now you are ashamed

Like, just cannot describe,

Overwhelming feeling I adore.

Valentine's is not enough,

Everyday I want you more.

Holy cow, what. O_O I did not expect this. Thank you so much. 

(Now I don't feel so bad about how overboard I went with that comment!)

Excited about the acrostic poems. Love that technique. :D

Thanks again. Wow.
