There was a woman, sat proud, straight backed.
She sat a long, long while.
Staring into the vast starlit sky.
From her soul flew forward all manner of colour, all manner of light.
Out and around, it entwined and encircled her.
Of course, to this, her own light, she was blind.
The longer she sat, still and quiet.
The farther afield her sparks flew.
Touching one other, colliding, strengthening.
Until finally her dreaming mind reached that magnificent peak.
Her energy imploded, spread out, and flew back to the universe from where it came.
All because she dared.
