I dreamt you were a hummingbird,
Your bejeweled wings a blur,
With eternal secrets hidden
Under your trembling feathers.
I prayed that you would see me,
As you danced among the gardens,
But you were swallowed by the sun.
I flung off my heavy shawl
And flew over these stone walls,
Searching for Elysium.
