Acrostics

Written for Poetry Jam

A Thought

Soak in silence brains which have been
Overloaded
And otherwise afflicted by too much noise
Killing the power of rational thought.


An Afterthought

Spiritual
orientation
always
kindles
imaginations
needing
grace.

  14. I love this!! Too much noise does seem to make one irrational in thoughts and decisions. Wonderful afterthought also!
