An Acrostic Reflection

r andomly I stare into
e ach reflective surface
f orever pondering the
l ines of age, pain and joy
e ach one a splendid testament
c ulled from a full life
t eased endlessly, eternally
i nto distorted images
o f the soul of me
n ever quite
s eeing..I

s urely, I am 
n ot this shallow
o nly time can plane my cheek
i nsight my eyes to fade
t urn the plumpness of lip to
c rinkles of mirth
e nlivening the gray
l anguishing in silver
f orever seeing but parts of the
e cstasy I
r eflect

    WOW Deb! This is truly outstanding. You shine at creating Acrostic, for this is a masterpiece. I think, one of the best I have ever read! Straight into my fav's.

    Love the way you you reversed the word and used it both ways. Yes, I think I am wearing myself a bit thin with traveling and babysitting and trying to move the kids. Will be glad when they are here in Jan. Only a couple of months left. It has been a tough year for me and very stressful. Hope the new year will ease things up for me. Thanks for asking. Love phyl

    Very talented and clever interpretation Debbie---every line (no pun) ie. plumpness of lip to crinkles of mirth--awesome--and to end on an upbeat reflects that it's been all worthwhile---not to worry mine is creative freedom--soup mail

    LOVE it! I like how you've practically reflected the world 'reflections', and how you've shown the physical and emotional reflection. I'd say that's reflection on three fonts. Nicely done!

    Debbie; If this is for the contest - I think it's beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    Mirror mirror on the wall Debbie? I like the third line of second verse. "Only time can plane my cheek" True, because if we don't allow the cares of this life to get the better of us, then it's effect wont be showing on our faces. May not be where you were taking this, but my take on it. So Teach, please check out my latest Frozen Heart Haiku...let me know if I did ok with them...thanks much and one love, Joy Wells
