This is a marvelous acrostic on red roses as a token of love and affection. I'm really taken back by this, wonderful vocabulary... You've captured this classic romantic notion ...all with such few words.
Aw Michael ... and it's not even valentine's day! Lol
I love how you've described love as a chain of physical reactions almost in response to the scent of a red rose ... I wonder if we've actually conditioned ourselves to have such a response to the scent?
Love how something so deceptively simple as your poem is actually rather thought provoking! x
Thank you Miss Kitty K
Just a few comments from other poets in how they feel makes it a joy to write this. I have written this from my feelings, and so nice to read the comments left, which is just emotionally inspiring, yours being part pf that :)x

Your use of language and delicate touch raises this acrostic far above the standard fare. Acrostics are too easy to just reel off without much thought other than to get that first letter of each line right; people are usually lazy when writing them which gives them their bad name. A good acrostic can be excellent and are never easy to execute. Yours are always excellent and never lazy. They are also always a pleasure to read.
