                              Her young life imitates art
                              on a new day, tabula rasa,
                              when a blank canvas awaits
                              colors of dreams and life,
                              shared visions brought forth
                              for others to see
                              and ponder
                              and admire,
                              once they know
                              the depth of hues,
                              shades of life
                              to be long remembered,
                              and textures to the touch,
                              the touch and hugs
                              to stir life,
                              the coming together
                              for newly-found understanding.
