The week of Kwanzaa doesn't start until December 26, but I was stuck for a poem today and I thought an acrostic would be an easier one to write. (Actually I'm working on a cento and it isn't ready yet. It really needs some more time to cook.) I was joking with a friend and told her that after three years of writing Christmas holiday poems for three years during the month of December, I'd pretty much said it all and I needed to find a new slant or get a new idea. I said I'd have to start writing Kwanzaa poems because I didn't think I'd done that yet. So that's how I got to today's poem. If you'd like to know know more about this holiday, you can find out more at the Official Kwanzaa web site.
Your challenge for today is to try writing a poem about how your family celebrates the holiday. Can you write your own acrostic?
