    In
    a poverty-stricken
    neighborhood
    there
    she elegantly
    stood.
    Brilliant & shining
    beneath the sun
    like an Egyptain idol
    organic, healthy looking & vital
    The manifestation
    of her aura
    was pure essence,
    indeed a
    spiritual allegorical
    engulfed
    her presence.
    Her
    face so youthful & rare
    it caused
    every man to stop
    & stare,
    She
    became the atmosphere
    of mystery & admiration
    like
    some sacred voodoo shrine
    belonging
    to a Yourba nation.
    Her
    ebony skin
    was
    like soft
    Indian silk
    regal
    like dark coffee
    without the milk,
    her
    deep ocean eyes
    were the reflection
    of her beautiful
    phsyical expression
    When she walked
    she walked
    with a soft air
    that spoke
    of grace & flair.
    She
    was indeed
    lovely as a gazelle
    so natural
    like spring water
    from a well,
    It
    was easy
    to see that she
    was
    heaven sent.
    There
    was something
    about her so exotic & potent.
    Like
    a garden
    of wild violet flowers
    as
    she mystically
    exhibited her inner powers
    without
    a touch of egotism.
    When
    she spoke
    her words were harmonious,
    & her excessive
    polite behavior
    was ceremonious,
    when
    she gently touched
    my hand
    I felt her flame
    as
    she sweetly told me
    that Namibia
    was her name.
