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.

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.
from Letters: Building an Alphabet with Art and Attitude by Peter Liptak
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.
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
