Keeping Spry At The Y
Hi Marilyn,

I just saw this poem now in the voting booth. Congrats on your well deserved win!

This is such a cute Acrostic poem! I love your use of the 'V' and 'W' with "Vera" and "Walt". It made me chuckle. If I had a six left, it would be yours for this creative poem. Love the humor in this write!

Looks like the 'Y' is good for more than just your health. It gave you great fodder for this fun write.

Connie

    Hi Connie. I have you to thank for the tip on water exercise. Thank you. I am enjoying myself there. I tried a few other classes, but I'll stick with the water one for the time being. The other classes are too much like work. LOL! Thank you for your nice review. Marilyn

Keeping Spry At The Y
Hi Marilyn. Ha Ha well done and congratulations on your win. Your consistent 8 syllables made for a good read and the content priceless. and good on you for getting all the letter in an unforced manner.
I have been going to a gym for 18 years and do weights and tripple T ,tummies, thighs and tails. and sometimes feel like an old crock when finished but keep going back ( although have been very slack of late and must get bak into it LOL) Loved this Marilyn and it did bring a smile

Cheers Christine ( PS catching up again, I have been away for a while so much to catch up on !) ???

    Hi Chrissy. Thank you so much for your fun and fabulous review and rating. I did have fun with this one. The water exercise classes are my favorite. I'm glad you're back at FS. It takes a while to catch up on things when we take a break. Marilyn

Shadows
A very nice acrostic poem, somewhat dark and frightening. Strangely enough, it goes well with a dark and windy day that we are having here. Anyway, it is quite well written. Evi

    Hi Evi. Thank you for reading this old poem without any points on it. This was one of my favorites on the topic of shadows, but if memory serves, it didn't do too well at the time. I appreciate you having a look at it and your nice review. Marilyn

That's suitably gross and scary! It's well written and enjoyable. I'm sorry that it did not win but glad that we get to read it! Evi

    Hi Evi. This is another older poem that IS just about my all time favorite poem. The topic here was to "mention a bird." Well, I mentioned a bird and then some, didn't I. Thank you for finding it in my portfolio, reviewing it, and for your fabulous rating. Marilyn

Wow. It's so vivid and full of imagery, Marilyn. I can see why it would be a favorite. *smile* I feel like I was in that jungle with you, scratching and clawing for every step, guarding my back from evil animals wanting my body and blood! Super job!

    Hi Robyn. Thank you for reviewing this one. It was fun to write, too. I wouldn't want to be there, though. The closest I cam to this was in Thailand and Africa when I was a flight attendant for Pan Am. Marilyn

Everybody wants to be a Survivor. That sounds like a terrible story. Where to find hope now... Well thought out. Great visual imagery. Nice flow of rhythm and rhymes. Great work. Good luck in the contest :)

    Thank you, Alicia. Your review is accurate. Who would want to be there? Not me! As indicated, this is a repost of an old poem that I like a lot. Marilyn

Hi Marilyn, I don't know how this poem escaped me. I enjoyed reading this very descriptive acrostic poem. I certainly wouldn't want to die lost in the jungle. This poem shows great imagination. Well done! ~DD

I've been gone so long from FanStory that I'd forgotten what an acrostic poem is, but then I remembered! Yay! Excellent job here, Marilyn, in meeting its requirements, and what great imagery you provide here. As I read through it, I really felt like I was working my way through the jungle! I can see why it's one of your favorites.
My best to you.
Connie

    Hi Connie. So happy to hear from you. I'm glad you're back. How is little Jack doing? And his little to-be sibling (sister)? Thank you for your wonderful review and rating of this poem. Marilyn

Beating Drums and Death
Drenched in suffocating humidity
Raindrops swell into a deluge
Underneath the stifling canopy
Mamba lurks in subterfuge
So I stumble toward eternity

This is a well done acrostic I especially like the above stanz. Take care, my friend~Debbie

    Hi Debbie. Thank you for your wonderful review and comments. This is one of my favorite poems which was in a contest back in 2014. I thought a re-post was worthy since it was fun to write. Marilyn

Marilyn, a very good one for the acrostic poem contest. I can
see why it's one of your favorites. It made me feel as if I were
there with the sights and sounds and fears of being in the jungle.

    Thank you, Judy. I do like this one. Even though it didn't win in the contest back in 2014, I felt it was worthy of re-post. The topic at that time was "lost in the jungle." Marilyn
