Flash 55 Plus: “A Study in Beryl Refinement”



Aerial grip with tenuous toes
A study in beryl refinement
Illuminated in leopard guile

A link between water and earth
Heaven’s cobalt kiss and
Scourge for your enemies

A carcinogenic litmus test
For habitat putrefaction and
Species annihilation

Costa Rica and Brazil to
Ends of the world
Hasten preservation

Vital antitoxin
Dendrobatids continuation?
Azure conundrum

    1. Thank you! I was afraid that I overdid it with more complex words. Sometimes I get really wrapped up in words lol
