Today's writing exercises included one in which we had to write acrostic poems. I have seen examples of it before, but have never attempted one. The pieces were to have a theme for the acrostic, based on an image that was shown. The image I got was one of the golden sky at dusk, with a couple of tree tops, two lights and electric wires just above the trees. 

The theme I picked was "Golden Glow".

Gone are the days of 
Old, where we stopped to stare
Look at the blazing sky and
Dream of the unknown
Entire forests now lie bare
No one seems to care

Gently the sun sets in the West
Life goes on as the city lights take
Over. The trees are few, electric wires block my view.
When will we stop to care?
