So, what do you get when you combine the concepts behind the haiku and the acrostic? Well, you get a major headache, for one, and there’s the Haiku-Acrostic!
What is the Haiku-Acrostic, you might ask. It’s a popular poetic form (okay, so it’s not that popular, but people do write in this form for fun), where you start off with a three-letter word. “Car,” for example. You write a haiku (following the 5-7-5 rule) such that the first letter of each line reads “car” in sequence.
This poetic form is quite limited, as you’re only allowed to form acrostic messages with three-letter words.
Seeping through my skin;
Ubiquitous, this presence—
Never, though, today.
