Abcdarien...


Recognition

Appearance beautifully clean
declared earnest favor gained
here in just kindness lends
mirrored notes outside pane
quest range safely tacked under
victory window x-rayed
youthful zestfulness

Hi Rhoda,

I hard form to use but did it! I don't have that "youthful zestfulness" but I hope people will still recognize me. Can't do anything about getting old so one might as well enjoy the ride. Thanks for making me smile today.

Love,
Karen

I found this form to be interesting - sometimes the words are hard to find, but I like the challenge. Thanks Karen for the always supportive comment...rg

Boy you sure met the challenge in an amazing way. I think there isn't anything you cannot do when it comes to writing poetry. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome talent.
