Fantasy Is The Luster Of Opalescence

As I search to adorn my naked thoughts in nacreous chic, breathing bliss and sipping soulful seas, my wild whimsy in wanderlust glides like an albatross seeking the iridescence of the abalone shell. Susan Ashley September 2, 2021 N/A Excerpt from: Wanderlust Of Imagination (1/10/19) Contest: Liberum Divisa 7 Sponsor: Gregory Richard Barden

My dearest friend, Gina, I relish your lovely visit and cherish your inspiring comments. Thank you, sweet poetess. All is good here, except for life's busy-ness that has kept me away from the Soup recently and away from wonderful friends like you. Hoping all is good with you and yours as well.

These four lines stand out proudly on their own, Susan. As usual, your vocabulary is of a high standard; alliteration comes to the fore, and the reader is easily tempted to partake from your mellow fantasy. ~ Warm regards & hugs my friend. // paul

I love how the title alone is so laden with stunning imagery, and the poem abundantly delivers on that promise, I think the third line is my favorite for the meter and musicality of it! Hoping for a win for you :)
