1. An A in Art
    Colored smart to start

    Take a triangle and triple it.
    Then line it with color bit by bit,
    With sharpened tips like sailing ships
    Then flattened sides and jagged divides.

    Adventure awaits on the angled edge of A,
    An active letter lined with hues to play.
    Ridden red from blue then lined with a ray
    Of light – white and bright, but hey…

    This is an alphabet apart
    Animated from the heart.
    A may be abrupt, brusque, or curt you say grinning
    But such begets a winning beginning.

  2. The Pleasure of Licking
    A lopsided lolli pop

    Should we always plop
    A lollipop up top?
    “No, slide it to the side
    and a P of pleasure it will provide.”

    A single stick, straight and slick
    Sided right by a ring of white,
    Presenting swirls of perfection to lick
    As a champion of letter’s might.

    Buttressed by lines of lopsided lollies
    In a perfect p formation of follies.
    Rank and file, ready to be read
    Pure of heart, “We are P!” they said.

  3. An O of Opportunity
    Mulls over its cyclical origin

    From a simple circle born,
    The rolling O began to form.
    Round about and ringed within
    A line unbroken, in hoops so thin.

    Color bound, the open O
    Broke through lines of straight edged thinking
    To orange out a ring of hope
    And colored so, began unblinking...

    To circle round a philosophy of sound,
    The unbridalded oooh of an existence profound.
    “Say it loud,” said O, then softly supplanting,
    Changed its tone to an ohm-ish chanting.

  4. The Guiding Light of G
    Glowing gas grey in its gap

    From color’s absence, a soft glow,
    A gap of darkness, devoid of woe.
    Edged out in gamma-ray grey light to guide,
    The genesis of G to the other side.

    Hey G, did you see
    That razed light, rising, about to be?

    A big loop of gelatinous light
    Framed by the garrulous night.
    A generous gem in soft white. ...
    That’s G alright
