the cavernous backdrop

the fathomless depths

and tangled corridors

of midnight

she shimmers

in cool white silhouette

and the shadows tremble

at the vision

of her softly wrinkled

dew-soaked petals

such solitary beauty

born into darkness

her pearlescent face

the only light

on the black canvas

of endless night
