Her dress was deep green and soft,
Matching the color of her heart.
Her feet were bare,
gently connecting to the earth.
She was coming out of hiding and every person who looked into her eyes could tell she spent time alone.
Alone with herself, the winter wind and the barren trees.
She had learned the sound of her breath and fell in love with life.
For the first time she saw herself for who she was.
And this was her magic, her gift to the world.
