Double the Fun


(The North Pine River at Sunrise. I took this with a cheap digital camera while going
for a walk at about 5am one morning)


Liz is the love of my life.

I wrote this double acrostic for her during a difficult time for us.

They're difficult to write because the words are written in a square, and the first and last column of letters makes up a word - in this case a name. So each line has to have exactly the same number of letters, with the only leeway being that full-stops may have either one or two spaces after them to help keep the acrostic square.

They're worth the challenge. But so is life :)

Enduring hope of a shareD
Life with you gives extrA
Impetus to us.  No shadoW
Zones of despair can ruiN
An iron-strong tie insidE
Both of us.  Our love caN
Endure the many trials iN
This life that we face. I
Have faith in our onenesS
