When I hear your name and think of everything that you are
I associate it with the color blue.
You aren’t the kind of girl one sees every day,
And they say there aren’t many things in nature that are blue.
But the ones that are
Bring about a pristine and dazzling beauty
Much like yourself.
You are a rare person to come across but the people who you
Grace your presence with are
Better off for it.
But someone like you could never
Be contained into single genre or category.
Your laugh resonates with bright
Yellow bursts of sunshine,
Echoing through the air and
Filling even the darkest of times with
Golden speckled bliss.
One can tell when you are truly happy because your eyes light up
And twinkle softly like blue-green
Christmas lights on a cold, quiet
The soothing sound of your voice envelopes the universe
Pulsing through the air in gently flowing shades of purples.
I see you in the way that rain drips off leaves after a summer thunderstorm,
A green oasis of better things
Promised to come,
With the serene sounds of nature coming to life.
Because you radiate life to those around you,
Puffs and tendrils of sky colored strength and courage
That absorb into everyone you meet.
You are as fierce as a wildfire, but not nearly as destructive.
Instead you are made up of the reds that reside in apple cinnamon candles and fresh roses.
Your name is a blue colored name.
But you are so much more than just a single identity.
Everything you are swirls together
Into vibrant colors of beauty and liveliness that have never previously existed.
You are a work of art:
You are a masterpiece.
