She pulls flashing flames of color

into her fingertips,

tries to tame the universe

with ghosts that dance in the raindrops


Explosions of the secrets

contained in a kaleidoscope,

hues delicate as printed paper,

intoxicating as sunlight on her shoulders


She harnesses the clash

of the icy shivers and the tongues of fire,

eyes flickering with blinding white clouds,

hair glittering black as onyx


And the shards of sun

drenched in red and blue

pierce her lungs,

force open her eyes


She floats headfirst

into the sunset horizon

and rides the color wheel

into a world all her own
