The Woman On The Mountaintop ( a challenge by billybuc).

Updated on November 14, 2014

This is my first challenge here on HubPages but it certainly will not be my last.

The Woman On The Mountaintop. (Acrostic).

Source

Through tears and sorrow

healing winds

explosion of minds.

x

Wondrous world

on infantile paths

misted senses

a journey to share

never-ending faith.

x

Onwards and upwards

ne'er to surrender.

x

Tempestuous storms

heart tugging emotions

escalating strengths.

Source

Maturity thrives

omens so clear

understanding , reassurance

nearer to her dream

touching legacies

as a new day beckons

instilling new strengths

notions unwinding

telling her story

of how she stands tall

preciously proud.


Source

I hope you enjoyed and a great big thank you to billybuc for setting this challenge.

Lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

Eddy.

      Exquisite and superb ! Eiddwen, I haven't ever seen such an acrostic poem , so blissfully written. No doubt, an excellent and soulful poem, and a great response to Bill's challenge. Voted up and shared.

      Oh thank you Harishprasad your words mean a lot. Do you know I was very nervous creating this hub because I have read so many others on this challenge; some wonderful stories as well as poems and I didn't think this compared to them in quality at all.

      However I am now looking forward to the next challenge .

      Thank you again my friend and enjoy your day.

      A beautifully written poem to Bill's challenge Eddy.

      You have a wonderful knack of finding photo's and music that go so well with your hubs.

      We seem to have a similar taste in music.

      Have a nice weekend Eddy.

      Eddy. you are far braver than I in taking up challenges on HP. I don't perform well to them, whereas you took the challenge by the horns and created a wonderful acrostic. At the same time, you are introducing your new readers to a different style of poetry accompanied by wonderful imagery. Very well done. Voted up and awesome.

      For your first time I thought that you did good Eiddwen. I am just starting on my second one. This was graceful yet daring and it had various paths yet only one way to the top. Very good. I voted up, shared and pinned it.
