Xenia Epigram
To opal I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like menilite
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using chrysolite

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Terse edifying abstracts, perhaps imparting, and oh but imparted free?
Obtuse or cloudy look all too absolute. But is blurred?
Ambiguous, murky? - or abstruse, darkness? Damn! I neglected slurred!
I wonder recondite and therefore obscurity, but frankly ought I
- crank meanings so - abstracts crafted from computers spry?
