Freedom must be championed!

Adualtion's esurient eye/
anticipates the chosen/
as she moves in polychromatic effulgence/
nimbus is radiant/
of an authenticated birthright/
she IS/
the heir apparent/
the sentinel/
standing watch at the crystal gate/
where the heart’s true longings/
& nurture musings/
she is the embodiment of intrepid hope/
intrepid strength/
challenging oppression/
by her sheer presence/
rises up from the aphotic bowels/
of the swamp of treachery & intolerance/
where leeches dwell/
in wicked jollity/
& encircles her glory/
sensing the delectable ichor/
coursing through her veins/
It abhors her splendor/
her haughty calm/
her unshakable faith/
in the indomitable spirit/
of a resolute soul/
it is determined/
to still her voice/
to enervate her potency/
to usurp her reign/
from the monotone prism/
malicious intent/
it seeks/
her audacity/
in the face of life’s/
and the liberating eos/
emanating like lightning/
from her demeanor

She is your muse.

Reviewed by Diana Legun (Reader) 4/13/2012
Wow, in all of this eloquent, albeit unobsequious, vocabulary -- which when I read it, wraps around concepts like a purple feather boa -- you manage to maintain subject/verb agreement, even through all the delicious ribbon windings of your language around the lithe stems of everything tall and short. It is astonishing. ~~ Diana
