Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do. Edgar Dégas
The same may go for poetry? (whatever, I enjoy painting with the words!)

You are going acrostic on me!

"Noah's sin" .. yes, I remember that, at least the one in the Bible. We are still gossiping about him.

A common problem, alas. Nice acrostiche.

whoa! You are good! I hope you won't have to look over your shoulder now for the next week waiting for the shadow of Sweetie to fall. Thanks for the smile, Jim.

All that talk! I try not listen to the noise but to hear the voice and learn the heart.

This is so good! And an acrostic, too. How cool is that?

This is good JIm, but I'll bet you didn't show it to Sweetheart!

Thank you all for the nice comments. I ran out of time, this was a little 'quickie' acrostic that was sitting--sans 'sweetheart'--in the back of my mind.

Thank you for your concerns as well, the 'sweetheart' referenced is NOT Mrs. Jim. No way.
I liked the flow using this word.
