Campus Canopy Acrostics

poems by Anna Young

I created these acrostics after learning the histories of a few storied trees on the Pullman campus of Washington State University. They combine these histories with the images of present in a simple format. Each one tells a story with both the words and the shape. The collection of five acrostics spans trees across campus, creating a connection between each of the five despite the distance between them. - Anna Young
