What do you see? #1 — She Soars

For long she swam in pools of jade
But now her wings soar lilac skies
Twixt earth and sky in orange brocade
For long she swam in pools of jade
In shadows waits; she’s heaven-made
Transform from sleep! Awake! Arise!
For long she swam in pools of jade
But now her wings soar lilac skies!
