Today’s poetic challenge is all about the acrostic, another of my favorite forms, and the topic is gifts:
Could I possibly be wealthier? Well,
Heck – sure,
Diamonds and gold. But true
Riches cannot be counted, nor
Entered in ledgers.
No, true wealth lies in those
Around us, in friendships, in
Especially in children.
There is nothing sweeter than a
Hug from a sleepy toddler or an
Excited baby’s squeals of joy.
