Mother of Pearl

Napowrimo small

mother of pearl caviar spoon

Smooth iridescence,
shining luminescence,
silky strength and resilience;
trace tempting inlays
touched by musicians,
adored by pearly kings and queens.

Baglamas and bazoukis,
caviar spoons, buttons,
beautiful jewellery
warm to the skin,
sexy as satin, sultry and shimmering,
nacreous clouds and notional things.
