“There are two ways of spreading light. To be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.” – Edith Wharton.


by Carmen H Gray

The bright light that scintillates

From you

 Illuminates the book that narrates

your life

Glowing girl

Exuberant and fierce

Margarite, an ancient pearl

Born of protection

From assailants

You are not a reflection

You are the flare

That lights up my world

 In every way, everywhere

One response to “She”
