They - Poem by Rebekah Gamble

They believed in color
and burning candles
with flames dancing
on ceilings like skies.

They had wings
just like the butterfly.
They blossomed in
the noon-day sun.

They slept, riding
on cool moon winds.
They smiled and the world
smiled and laughed in return.

They cried
so the world rained
with haunting beauty
down the smooth glass

of a girl's window,
reflected off the mirror
of a lake outside
and made her see.
