N
ouns and verbs marching like soldiers from lips through air to ears, hup, two, three…

G
estures: fingers that point and show disgust, hands saying come here or stop.

U
gh, ah, oh, wow, gee, ooh, ow, eek: sounds of life, words unnecessary.

A

G
azes that flow like the scent of baking bread with messages of love.

E
nvelopes of words we slit open to release the magic of speech.

I think that's tremendous. I've only just discovered acrostics (to write, that is) and I think they're great fun.

I LOVE how you did this. I've done these before to hide messages I didn't want just anyone to read LOL. But I've never thought to do one like this. GREAT job!

What fun! I love the closing line, those envelopes of words slit open to release the magic of speech; reminded me of how I once felt, receiving letters from a faraway lover.
