For Noora (double acrostic)

Only her eyes are seen and grab

Netting hearts and admiration for

Every graceful turn and sweep into

Her crease, a smile, a sun reborn

Upon purest snow and hottest jazz

Nothing escapes her intense eye

Dreams made real in front of fans such as I

Relived, like the sun, her smile reborn

Every angel reflects the light

Darkness falls before all you do

Fifteen fighting, brawling, falling

Over ice our hearts melt, too

Under sun kept warm until

Reality ice, cold and hard

Tamed by the night’s greatest rising star

Evening becomes year becomes Noora’s era

Evening becomes morning becomes light

Noora becomes beauty
