#frapalymo – Elegant Strength

Elegant Strength

There is elegance inside strength
Dramatically powerful silk
Surrounded by extravagant splendors
Of subdued frivolity
Isolation carved from catastrophic consequences
The oppressive summit of true nature
A stately peak
Dictated by blinding sights
The flow of sounds
Breezes through an open gate
Extensive beauty firmly polished
In a word
Intricate mansions only a few have found

#frapalymo is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog The Bee writes. Today’s prompt was “only words from two pages are allowed”. Basically, I could only use the words found on two pages of a book. I used page 164 and 165 of my current read, The Bourne Supremacy. It took me a while because it was at once too many words and not quite enough. I could never find exactly what I needed so I had to let the words guide me. I think I ended up with a complex poem that holds meaning for me but might hold something entirely different for you.
