Dancing in starlit puddles of light, she calls to us, waits for us.

She dances through the galaxy,

Cloaked in luminosity,

Her dark hair mocking the swirling of stars,

She wanders the moons,

A shimmering star in the distance.


The freckles along her cheekbones

Mimic the sprinklingof planets

Throughout the universe.

She swims through the sea of rocks

In a star system of endless darkness.


Dancing in starlit puddles of light,

She calls to us,

Waits for us,

A glimmering beacon of hope and light.
