    Hey Friend, a belated congratulations/apology for not reading your wonderfully written break up poem before I had to go off on a trip. I have read it now and certainly see how it placed on the winner's list. I'm back in town and will return to my specific comments relating to your winning poems for future contest. Again, sorry I couldn't respond sooner. But what a great work you have accomplished.. Hopefully PD knows it's all in fun!

    You made all the pieces of the puzzle fit together nicely in this descriptive acrostic.

    Nice write on a problem far too familiar to so many. It also takes a lot of inner strength to make it through it. Great Job K!

    Wow! This is eye-opening! Never have I seen an acrostic that held so much meaning and truth. I love how you've used the name to question what's associated with taking on a name that doesn't live up to the name (hope that makes sense). Great write!

    Hi Vicky, I've never considered writing an acrostic. This one just kind of wrote it's self. It was very random and a surprise to me ...darn muses :)
  1. Date: 1/13/2014 10:14:00 AM
    lol love it K! I was going to do an acrostic with my name once; but it has 10 letters and I really didn't have that much to say about my self at the time! lol

    Nice acrostic Karen. a name is just a label given to us by our parents, we are so much more than this, as we look deeper...Thanks for the read...peter

    Names are very important ..for instance the name Karen means Pure in Greek and Love in Scotland...best wishes

    Karen, oft we cling so hard at our trunks that our branches wither from trying, believe me I tried, in the end, we find that our first name alone suffices, anything more is just a mere extension, you alone will always suffice as long as you love the woman who have become, be kind and gentle to her, as you age you'll find the mirror will treat you much gentler, sending u love, hugs and all that you might need, with a sip of amicable cheer, go on girl, keep writing, love xxx
