    Craig, I liked this in the contest and I like this now. Acrostics can be easy, but you ramped up the difficulty with the rhyme. watermelon - the shape so like other human attributes. I like the play on imagery and the expression of the passing of time.

    Well done.

      Thanks dude.

      It didn't end up as I intended. My initial thoughts were quite frivolous, but it morphed into a poem about experience.

      A little unknown fact about me is I actually find it difficult not to rhyme. Many things start out not doing so but end up in the song.
