italian word game #4 - writing acrostics - Hello everyone,:)
let's play a creative game. Do you know what an acrostic is?

Here are some definitions of acrostic:
[size=2][quote]
A poem or some other text written in alphabetic script, in which the first letter of each verse, paragraph or some other recurring feature in the text spells out another message.
[/quote]
[quote]
A poem or series of lines in which certain letters, usually the first in each line, form a name, motto, or message when read in sequence
[/quote][/size]
How to play:
Write an acrostic using the previously given word. After writing his/her own acrostic, each player will have to give another word.

Example
Acrostic of the word SOLE:
Splende
Ovunque
Luminoso
Eterno

First word: FIORE

Ciao! ;)

a comment - Hi Erik,
you should write a sentence or a short poem, not just a word list...;) words should be connected in some way...

Che significa Elegua?[/quote]

My basic understanding is that Elegua is like a God or deity w/ certain powers.
I just associate it with part of the Afro-Cuban/Orishas.
