      Thanks Audrey, so do I. :)

      Yes Flourish, had to dust off the cobwebs to use the thesaurus...lol.

      You are welcome Sunshine. Not that you'll need to use them very often.

      Thanks for finding this hub Harishprasad, it was something new for me too but fun to try to find these words and make a poem with them. The creativity within poetry is endless and the reason I love it. I am glad it made you stop and think "outside the box" maybe. Thanks too for the vote up.

      What a wonderful concoction of so many different words ! Isn't our beautiful planet is like the great jumble produced by you here ? Heterogeneous yet so curious, great, marvelous and full of grandeur ! What Bill has said about words seems quite fascinating and an idea to be worth pondering. All words, people, things, dreams, feelings, etc. and there are countless things present in this world and some we have coined so imaginatively about the world hereafter. If one is able to conceive something everyday out of this great treasure, our creativity will be ever busy ! I loved this hub as it made me stopped and think something different. Voted up.

      Lol! Nice one Jodah; indeed you must have had an overflow of time on your hands. Let's throw this one into the party that I made up - a tongue-twister :)

      ~ "S " ence ~

      Swarthy Senorita, swathed in sassy, sensuous scenes;

      Surveying silent souls, selling sordid,secret schemes.

      Sparsely sown surprise, supports superfluous, strident stealth;

      Stalling, shady strangers, stretching stories of sorry self.

      Soundly-spoken syllables, sail like slowly-swimming streams;

      Stormy-sprinkled speeches, showing symptoms of strained seams.

      Shrewdly, stark, sequacious, Suzy states sagacious shocks;

      Swooping, sure sequences, soundly sporting shares and stocks.

      Suggestions, surreptitiously, smother Spring's sweet Summer song;

      Serious seductive smiles, show her singing's, swinging strong.

      Sunny showers signal September's sneaky survival streak;

      Stellar-strewn striations spawn a subtle sign she seeks.

      Strolled, subjective sentiments,sustained in swift sweet subdivisions;

      Superimposed subjoinder, subdues selective speech submissions.

      Storing special sayings, stashed like scabbard-sealed swords;

      Serrated-steel sounds, safely stored in scribbled scores.

      Have fun!

      R.Q.

      Haha great advice Theresa, but that is a great suggestion for next time. Don't know why I didn't think of that. Love your comment, thanks.

      Theresa Ast 3 years ago from Atlanta, Georgia

      Jodah - Great poem and there is nothing better that word play and dictionary time, but I am disappointed... I wanted you to make the word BORED out of the first word / first line acrostic. Maybe next time. :) Theresa

      Well, this is interesting. Really bored, are we Jodah? Your summary made me laugh before I even read the poem. You are very creative, my friend -- and obviously bored. hahahaha I love it ! I am still laughing. Well done and not an easy task either.
