are the incarnation of hope,
a spirit risen from depths of dreams.
The embodiment of fortitude,
shimmering gold, gracing arid streams.
are gentle latticed desire,
lacing living flesh with love and light.
A mild flame kindled by faith reborn
igniting passion to fervent flight.
are chaotic serenity,
tender turmoil pulsing through my veins.
The glistening upon sated leaves
after long-awaited summer rains.
are inspiration's ecstasy,
a vibrant sunset observed at dawn.
Improbable fantasies realized,
an eternal lonesome path forgone.
