Experimental Poetry Form: Acrostic colors

This experimental poetry form is called acrostic colors.  It is simple in idea, and depending on the subject of the poem, could make a good presentation.

The poem has three lines, each separated by a line break.  The first line, is an acrostic of the word “blue”, the second is an acrostic of the word “orange”, and the third is an acrostic of the word “red”.  Additionally, the text of the blue line is colored blue, the text of the orange line is colored orange, and the text of the red line is colored red.

Here is an example poem to illustrate the idea:

Blowing lightly under eves,

outside rain almost nears glass enclosures,

remaining encased defends.
