An arm and a Leg

-
An exotic holiday
Nice idea

Ample rest
Relaxation but
Melting currency

Awakened thoughts
Nagging worries
Dominated

A forturne spent

Lost years of
Earnings earned
Greeted with worry again


- written for Acrostic Only ;  Prompt 7

Meaning of the slang: A large amount of money; very expensive or costly.

  2. How true! We earn so much and spend in our luxuries and holidays, only to come back broke and work hard to make another luxury and holiday work! Vicious cycle, but that is how life is moving on these days. Nice acrostic.
