I can't believe you could create a full-body poem like this with no letter A! It is amazing. You are very talented and creative. Loved your humor and wit, as well as your artistic presentation and artwork.

The skin on my body, loosened by time,
keeps me from thinking I'm still in my prime.
Our youthful good looks don't linger for long.
The urge to hold on is ever so strong.

What an accomplishment! I am very impressed.

Poem with no letter A
Mirrors
by BethShelby

Hello, Beth,

It's too bad you missed the deadline for the contest, this is a great entry. I didn't even notice the letter A was missing. The topic is relatable for many women. Well done.

What a great poem, written without any A's! I feel so bad for you, that the contest was filled, when you were done writing it, but you did a fantastic job. I enjoyed the theme, having already entered the 7th decade of my life, myself, asking myself where the time has gone and what has happened to the body I left behind?

I only found one spag:

My stuffy nose is, most likely. bright red.
-->
My stuffy nose is, most likely, bright red.

I really love that picture! Where did you get it?

Here are my favorite verses:

"The skin on my body, loosened by time,
keeps me from thinking I'm still in my prime."

and,

"The prize is not for the glory of youth.
Time comes with wisdom, discernment, plus truth."

    Thank you so much Mary Kay, I probably got more reviews and stars on this than I would if I'd made the contest. My eyes have gotten so bad lately, I can't seem to tell a period from a comma. I'm so glad you liked this and I'm glad you told me your favorite lines.

    That's great to know, Beth, Congratulations! You're very welcome. Love and blessings, Mary Kay xoxo

    You should be a paid editor. You see most all the errors and that is a big help.
    Beth

reply by Mary Kay Bonfante on 23-Sep-2020
    Thanks so much :-)
    I was an editorial assistant for several years, but it was hard to deal with the deadlines. They loved my accuracy (called me "Eagle Eyes") but my speed, not so much!
    This is much more pleasant.

This is such a relatable poem. What woman doesn't consider how her body and appearance have changed?
The picture and background look antiquated because of the colors. Wise choice on both!
No A's...That must've been hard to do. I am sorry you didn't make it into the contest, because this would be a contender!

That's too bad Beth it would have been a good contender. Everything you say is so true, but we have to accept the bad with the good. The good is that as we age (most of us) we do discern things with a more enlightened view. We can't have beauty and wisdom both, I guess.

It's amazing that you wrote these beautiful poem without using the letter a. Amazing. I like this following line the best: "In the dim morning light, wrinkles don't show. If something's different, I don't need to know..." Amazing work.

A clever write, well rhymed and I adore the sentiments here Beth. So many lines I love here: 'In the dim morning light, the wrinkles don't show', 'The urge to hold on is ever strong', and the final line is magical: 'Time comes with wisdom, discernment, plus truth'. Love Dolly x

This is brilliant. Maybe, because I can relate to it too well! I am very impressed that I didn't even know about the no As until I finished reading. Your words and imagery are extremely poignant, but also accessible to all, not just women. Favorite line "the prize is not for the glory of youth" Good reminder!
