suppose that in all
circumstances your absorption
is precarious and
attraction is a lie on
insidious in its ability to
nuances that colour the atmosphere

You have a fresh voice, I did not anticipate a single line. Your poem is full of surprise.
Wow – thank you for that delightful comment. 🙂
Beautiful acrostic poem! Deep words… attraction is a lie on the lips.
Thank you – I wondered if anyone would pick that line out. 🙂
I’d forgotten about acrostic poetry – thanks for this lovely reminder. Both clever and beautiful. The picture is stunning too. Did you take it?
So glad you liked this – no I was not responsible for the photo – sadly. 🙂
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!
I enjoy popping into you site – there is always something intriguing – thanks for your comment. Glad you liked it.
I’ve always enjoyed composing Acrostics as well as reading others. You did a very fine job with the form in this piece, really enjoyed it, thanks
Thank you – that is lovely of you to say.
Love the way the word feels in your poem. Like a good meal there are truly different layers here.
What a wonderful comment – thank you
Great prose and pic!
Glad you liked it.
“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
Thank you Amy – I am so glad to read your comments on the poem. 🙂
