Outstanding Gem

The cloud murmurs as the sun
gaze intensely on the surface of the sea;
The sky throws up a beautiful golden piece;
which falls into the sea of seas,
To compete and synchronize with other
stones at the bottom,she must be perfect;
Polished and rinsed repeatedly by sea water,
She turns to a brilliant gem,
brilliant stone appreciated by all,detested by few.

Her words,character and  poetic prowess are unique,
which makes her meticulous and friendly with no huge physique,
Pretty,passionate,sincere and warm this I must say,
A lady of indomitable will , blesseth is your day,
A stallion out of many millions of land beasts,
fighting for freedom and world peace with her fists,
Her compassion,good intent and skills I love to see,
which have helped many out of doldrums and set them free.

         What else does such a being
            deserved?
           Blessings!,Accolades ,or Gifts!
             Hmm! I say 'all' ;
           She is :
           D-Dynamic
           E-Excellent
           B-Beautiful
           O-Outstanding
           R-Respectful
           A-Awesome
           H-Humble

specially dedicated to Debbie Guzzi*
