stunning the seas with her hair on fire,

eyes looking up at me with an invitation

and hushed finger placed to coquettish smile.


After my briefest hesitation and disbelief at receipt of this miracle,

her eyes lost ultramarine hue

and she turned away,

a lost pursuit dissolved into broken sapphire.
