From dark to light transfusing in a flash, 
your silver-sequined mystery 
that spawns new electricity, 
it shines where none has shone before, 
this trembling luminescence, 
through waves refracted with your sheen 
yet shows no movement readily, 
the broken sea reveals your rippled hand. 

Layer on layer endlessly, 
the waves preclude all semblance of your face 
and roll, so indeterminate their swell, 
that light cannot quite penetrate the gloom; 
and sun and stars no energy can gather 
to clarify your loveliness for me. 
Yet in the dusk your light still lingers, 
bright and undeniable, its filtered glow 
mitigates all loneliness.

    You seem to have that rare gift of stringing beautiful words together so craftily, as to make one lose herself in it, congratulations, dear man, you've succeeded in doing just that, have a great evening xxxVxxx
