Wrinkle - Acrostic

Woven lines patterned like the black widow's silk. 
Resting upon the face and the hands.
Insidious, the crow perches on skin once like milk.
Nestled in laugh lines, the years' stark demands.
Kings and Queens reign, then they, too, grow old.
Looking back at all the scavengers stole.
Each wrinkle a regret, the grave dagger's dole.

    This was a unique word choice for the acrostic contest. I think that this poem should have placed higher than it did. This was a very well written poem, Rhonda. Terrific work! Congratulations on your well deserved win!...Thank you for the kind comments. I really appreciate it!

    Now I must repeat what you said to me, for me this would have been much higher, it is an original, fresh, peek on an unused topic. Congrad's on your win. Light & Love

    Rhonda, this is SO descriptive of those nasty wrinkles!!! I loved the uniqueness of your entry. I was unsure of your meaning with grave dagger's dole, and except for that, was going to place it even higher! Congrats on this gem.

    The grave dagger's dole was just a play on words - digger / dagger. Don't worry...sometimes I confuse myself! I'm grateful for the placement...:))
