Eclectic



E-ccentric
 departing from the established or traditional norm
not situated in the geometric center 
a disc or wheel with its axis displaced from the center 
so it is able to impart reciprocating motion

C-andid
devoid of prejudice; impartial
 gathers friends from the four corners of the earth
love makes the skin appear translucent and diaphanous
sees unique qualities that shine from within

L-eading edge
the edge of a sail that faces the wind
 experienced wrath before and has endured a bigger storm
braced against the wind
does not fear an honest cry for help

E-sperance
filled with hope
endeavors to walk on the sunny side of the moon

C-ollage
artistic composition of varying objects
like a patchwork quilt
color is the theme that unifies

T-essellate
to form a mosaic pattern using a variety
of colorful stones or glass squares
to rotate a design so the shapes appear to interlock
kindness and compassion mingle to assist a weary soul

I-nsouciant
cheerfully nonchalant

C-onfetti words
sprinkled like glitter on festive occasions

Lady D described me as "Eclectic".  It means selecting the best from diverse sources or styles; one that follows an eclectic method

I have seen acroustics and I have seen ACROUSTICS! This is of the latter group I do not know you well enough to comment on your character

 But if what all the others have stated is true---- WoW!

Ahhh, now Ljo, you have really, really hit the proverbial nail on the head~!...There was not a better word than eclectic to describe you....((Good shot, Lady D)))....And, yes---we are learning more words to enhance our word banks..*smile*...Eccentric, as you describe, a little SSW on the compass and rightly so, but can adapt to any direction...Candid, as that is what most of us desire when asking questions, and you go directly to the point, which is refreshing....Leading edge, there when someone asks for a 'line to be thrown'....Esperance,...always able to see the scars upon your life and proceed in the sunlight....Collage,....we refer to eclectic, a kaliedascope of fabric...Insouciant...(new for me)...you seem to be in a life's path stroll, rather than in a rush....and Confetti words...a plethora of warm fuzzies from your heart....
Good work on this piece....LOVED it~!!

Very interesting way of expression you do have a great talent of saying what you mean....

The last is my favorite!  The one that sounded the most like you to me was Esperance -that is you Linda Jo.  They all sound like you.  What a wonderful poem about a true gem of a lady.  I enjoyed this write!
