Prompt from OctPoWriMo
Acrostic poem : WATER



Waters of oceans favored by the moon

All of nature bears witness

They bathe in the moonlight with shimmers and glows

Evening brings high tide and surrender to its magic

Rolling waves creep ashore tucked in this ocean- moon passion

In the month of April I participated in the marathon A to Z Challenge which I absolutely enjoyed. It gave me the opportunity to get rid of some of these characters running around in my head. Most of them I didn’t even know were there. I just followed where they took me. To all who stopped by, commented and decided to stick around, I thank you. I really do appreciate your support.


As for suggestions for improvement, I have none, it was a great experience all around.

A special thanks to Alex J. Cavnaugh


and cohosts and helpers.

Especially to those who helped when my brain was fried from working 12 hour shifts and I couldn’t remember the rules of the challenge in the beginning. Which is why my ‘B’ entry came way down the line. A special thanks to

Danny D of   http://bemuzin.com/

Evelyne of   http://evelyneholingue.com/

for their continued support and encouragement. I did not get to as many blogs as I would have liked but I do plan to plod on.

Again thanks to all.
