Fascination – an acrostic poem

fascination,

act charily,

suppose that in all

circumstances your absorption

is precarious and

not dependable,

attraction is a lie on

the lips,

insidious in its ability to

overtake the

nuances that colour the atmosphere

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

  1. thanking you for your comment on my work – and returning 🙂

    Loved this one – I wouldn’t have even realised it was an acrostic if you hadn’t said, which to me is always the sign of one well done! very nice!

  3. “Attraction is a lie on the lips.” Excellent line, a wonderful poem to read aloud, as I do all my fellow poet’s posts.

    Hope to see you again soon, Jo. You are gifted – this was an acrostic that was not obvious in its form, simply because the word was lovely and not at all forced. Good stuff! Amy

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
