#TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 321, 5/23/23

This week’s challenge is to write a specific form with a twist! https://wordcraftpoetry.com/2023/05/23/tankatuesday-weekly-poetry-challenge-no-321-5-23-23/

Write an acrostic poem with a syllable count of 8, 9, or 10 syllables per line (all the same, or a mixture of syllable counts, is fine).

Next Tuesday, May 31st, I will be presenting the scholarship in my son’s name, to two graduates of his high school. The Joseph Bialczak Excellence in Mathematics Scholarship. This was made to honor his legacy. ❤️


Letting the world know you were here
Engaging your memory often
Grasp the impact you had on others’ lives
Asking the world to remember you
Carrying memories day to day
Your memory will live forever
