Your rays forge art from gristle,

paint pain purified,

Your Turn to Shine

You have navigated the Shadowlands,

fought off the Giants whose bulk

blocks the sun;

you have endured the hot air

whose vapours tangle light waves

and bend them out of your reach.

will evaporate,

slinking away into the furthest recesses

where Shadows breed and breathe,

and it will come with a burst of brilliance –

your turn to shine.
