Intellectual - espresso maker--I found this ironic and humoruous but so true since so many intellectual conversations (many of them meaningless and going nowhere) tend to happen at a place like Starbucks over a paper or plastic cup of brew. How many of the problems on this earth are solved in such a situation?

This is interesting--a poetic word game with a message and plenty of images to go along. Thanks for sharing this.

Interesting acrostic, it did inspire me to write one of my own.
Thanks for being my muse.

A most meaning "full" acrostic, Franz. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you,

Franz, you touch on so many situations, evoke so many visual scenarios with this..it is at once highly entertaining, serious in message, and very clever...

Thank you!

Interesting and how very carefully you have chosen your words. Yes, humanity is waiting, for the right time, the right place, the right moment....

Be safe,

Reviewed by Axilea MU
I have rarely read acrostic poetry that was original. Most poems are full of clichés and/or are boring.

Yours is really interesting. Meaning comes from different types of association.

Greetings,

Axilea
