ACROSTIC ONLY asks us to work with the phrase

Whisps of cloud stream across the sky
Ill-winds press me back.
Leaves and birds go whirling by
Down the dust-dazzled track.
If the wind should now decide,
Suddenly, to grow stronger,
Take me up for a crazy ride
Higher, wilder, longer!
Every cloud would buffet me
Whistling past my ears!
I'd be inside the cacophany,
New rain would be my tears!
Dangling in the sky, you would see me fly.

If you're interested in Acrostics here's another one

Lovely poem! You've got me curious about writing acrostics now. Very creative.

I so like what you did with this prompt, very creative indeed --

I almost went with "I Believe I Can Fly" ... but it kept me grounded. So I let the wild wind carry me.

Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us.

I could see you flying among the clouds as the wind swept you on a journey.

Great acrostic on the prompt.

This reminds me so much of Dorothy taken up by the tornado.
I liked it.

I love your acrostic. You convey great imagery in this piece. I can certainly feel the wind and I'm watching you fly!
