Poem: "Visionary" (Acrostic)


Visionary
By: Eve Estelle

Aim for a target that lies beyond your sight,
Forget failure, the clipper of wings - go as far as you can;
The chance to soar exists for those who dream,
Stars shine their brightest in the absence of light.


Author's note: Acrostic poems are poems that contain hidden messages within their lines - can you find the phrase hidden here? :)

Hint:

- Four words (not individual letters).
- The second word is the first syllable of a two-syllable word.

Feel free to comment when you find it!

    1. Glad you like it. :) Probably my favorite line in this as well. You don't typically see the stars in the sky (er, besides the sun) while the daylight hides them; but they speckle the beautiful night sky by the millions.

    1. Wings, stars, and light - *sings* "These are a few of my favorite thingggs..." lol. Thank you, Laila! Isn't the image gorgeous? I love any kind of astronomy-related photograph like that. :) I believe it's of an actual star cluster, too - the Pleiades.

      Hidden messages give pieces so much more meaning! I don't do it often though, because any messages I'd want to add disappear from my mind when it's time to write. *sigh*

      Thank you so much again, I appreciate the kind words, you stopping by, and the follow!

  4. I haven't visited your blog in a while, but I missed your poems. This one is beautiful as always and very inspirational. I was trying to find the hidden phrase, but I think I failed.

    1. Good to see you again, Chioma! :) I missed seeing you around here. Thank you so much, and at least that means I didn't make it super obvious.

      Here's a small hint: It's four words, it's a well-known saying, and the second word of the phrase is contained within another word.
