      Thank you Susan. I missed last nights Day 2 and can’t find the email for it. I don’t know if I missed it or it is here and I just haven’t found it yet. Sometimes when I delete it will delete more than one, but I really hadn’t gotten to this point yet. I guess I will keep on looking for it.

        Day 2: Gift. Acrostic. Simile.
        You’re still here! Congrats on all the fantastic screen-inspired haiku!

        Today, let’s do something very different: a poem about a gift (or gifts). Day 2’s special form is one my favorites — the acrostic; as for the device, we’ll be exploring the ever-useful simile.
