I think this is a good entry for the Acrostic Poetry contest.
You describe elementals very well in your verse.
Well done and good luck to you with the contest.

This is a much more upbeat poem than I've been reading this morning, or at least just read. Oh yes indeed, being thankful and grateful for what we have is much more grace releasing than being critical. So well done, this is an excellent entry in this acrostic poetry contest, beautifully written my friend, I comment on your optimism, a bright light indeed. Well done, good luck, blessings, Roy

My favorite part of your uplifting poem is the latter half of the last line: "& have no regrets when you're old." Spot on, the entire poem filled with beauty such as "eternal fires of love create a spark night and day" and "summoning the strength".

This meets the contest requirements splendidly as you deliver a technically sound Acrostic Poem which adheres to al of the appropriate rules of form. The content is delightful and your use of vivid imagery quite effective. Good luck in the judging and thank you very much for sharing it.

I rather not believe in an afterlife but spirits and orbs do somehow exist. This was a well thought out poem. Nice visual imageries. Good details to make others believe. It is about trust. Good thoughts, good things. Bad ways, bad spirits. God bless you :)

I like your poem a lot. It covers elemental subjects I think about often - nature, beauty, love, spirits, happiness, living to have no regrets. You have skilfully woven these together with your acrostic.

A very well-written acrostic poem about life that can exist in any circumstances anywhere on earth. As long as all the elements of life exists in the right conditions.

Surely this rather beautiful pattern in the picture is the result of some kaleidoscopic effect producing both horizontal and vertical lines of symmetry. The acrostic works well as do the rhyming couplets.

I like this quite a bit. The artwork first captured my interest as it does seem like under the sea to me. It's the Viking blood in me.

There would be no light without darkness, so it serves its purpose, even though I prefer light.

This is very good and my only suggestion is that you reword you last line so it fits on one line rather than spilling over into two.

Wishing you luck with the Contest Committee. :)

Gloria
