Pinay with a quarterstaff (Notional Ekphrastic) (Edited)

She may be young,

She may be small,

She may even

Be southeast Asian.

Yet do not

Discount her so soon,

For she is nimble,

And she is quick.

 

This young lady,

Barefoot,

And wearing standard

PT gear

And wearing a small pin

Depicting a flag:

A red and blue flag,

With a triangle

At the hoist,

Depicting a sun

At it’s centre

And three stars

At each point

Of the triangle.

As said before,

Discount her not,

For looks do deceive.

 

For, Behold;

With her staff;

Graceful as a cat,

She swings and thrusts,

And parries,

With the grace of a cat,

Taking down

All foes,

Whether human

Or occultic,

Winning it all,

For her homeland,

For her host country,

And for her 

countrywomen

In her special regiment,

And even for

her homeworld;

The planet Earth!

However,

 most importantly,

she also fights

For her Lord and Saviour,

As evidenced by

Her genuflecting,

With her head bowed,

And her staff held

In an upright manner!

 

See! Above her,

against the

unadorned

Background,

A pair of rings,

Green, floating rings,

Resembling eyes,

Hover above,

Seemingly spectral,

To which she pays

No notice.

What are those rings?

Are they the eyes

Of a friend,

Sent by her Lord

And saviour to guide

And protect

Her and her regiment?

Or are they

the eyes of

A supernatural

Malefactor,

The likes of which

She is sworn to fight?

 

That, dear reader

Is the mystery

behind this painting!

She pays no heed to the green rings, to those satanic-masonic eyes of the malefactors, those enemies of mankind. Her Lord and Savior will cut them down with sword of his mouth. Trust me, the cabal stands no chance, and it knows it. It, in turn, will serve its masters--demons--in hell, forever.

Nice work, Assaf1981. She's southeast Asian, and I'm okay with that. I bow to her.
