    Ingrid,
    I don't know much about the goddess being portrayed here but it seems you did a good job as she represents, love and war, If I am right, and this piece really homes that in...would love to leave a more detailed comment but words fail me as does knowledge.

    You always manage to wow me with your writes...

    Great job Ingrid, nice you picked a rhyming acrostic.
    Works very well.
    I would wish you luck with the club challenge but that would mean you might beat me!!!

    I love how you managed to keep the flow steady whilst rhyming, and the acrostic didn't come out nonsensical. Takes a lot of skills to do that. Very well done. I enjoyed reading this piece.

    This poem is not only breathtaking, but it's a very well written acrostic. The rhyming is beautiful..

    The Goddess Ishtar has come to life within this poem.

    I have a personal adoration for this goddess and Ingrid did a beautiful word display of capturing her essence within this piece.. Wonderful poem!! Well Done Ingrid

    Hello Ingrid,

    I have just stumbled upon this poem. We seem to have a vogue for acrostics here on P&Q at the moment. I have never heard of this goddess of love, war, fertility, and sexuality, daughter of Anu, a sky god. Ishtar, pronounced Easter, but she is not about bunnies and chocolate Christian egg sybolisms, no, she is is rather raunchy lady of night relief...I like her. She is all woman!!
    *winks*

    She is confident and will use all that she possess to get what she wants and needs. Needless to say she would care not if there was spilt blood, she would call it collateral damage I am sure.

    Well done Ingrid and thank you for introducing this woman, this goddess to me.

    Take care,

    ((hugs))
