Collision of purpose
On divergent means
Interwoven effect
Not all what it seems
Call it a timely fluke
Incidental ends
Different approaches where
Elements transcend
Next to impossible
Circumstantial tie
Everything that happened
Somehow we deny

Saxoness & Iloveit: Thanks for looking in. Much appreciated! To tell truth, it's one of those acrostic poems... my first attempt. That should give you a clue to the meaning of the poem. By the way, I'm a little shy on internet lingo… what does "lol" mean? And how about the ROTFOL or however you spell it. I'm serious, I've got zero clue!

Hey, Andrew, I think your attempt is first rate, well-hidden and well-defined. LOL is lots of laughs and ROTFLMAO is rolling on the floor laughing my ass off ( a little stronger than LOL). Keep up the good work.

Muchas gracias Senor Balladeer. Nothing like a good acronym to mess with the uninitiated. Thanks also for the kudos on this piece. By the way, have you looked in on Lucie's Toe Tag of late. Toe and I have been in discussion. Thought you might enjoy.

Hey! Doesn't lol mean "laugh out loud"? Oh well, who really cares? I quibble here. Great poem Andrew. I caught the acrostice right away (the first time I have ever done so). LOL!

Yo from Toe!....I think ACROSTIC is so neat....and this was no exception...I know it's hard, takes alot of thought...and a good bit of wisdom......gee?..I wonder if that's why I write so little of it?.....This was indeed a good one pal!!

Elizabeth: Thanks for looking in. LOL = Lots of Luck, Love, Liver? Heck! Who knows what it really means?

Ladies D, Hoot & Suthern: Thank you all. Your works are much admired. Thanks for leaving your marks.

Toe: You get points too. Your words are much appreciated right along with your wonderful humor.

LOL Andrew....I didn't notice it at first but yep sure enough an acrostic.  The reason I laugh cuz, currently I haven't even been able to begin an acrostic for Nan's workshop this month.  I'm actually just digging through the archives and stumbled across this.  I enjoyed this very much.
