She darts by,
                                   Alive and lively.

                                 Long legs
                                 Long arms.


                                                                     A silhouette –
                                  A glimpse

                              If only I could
                                     Capture her
                                                 And hold her steady
                                                                            Long enough
                                                                        To understand who she is –

Who I am.
Washed clean of
Unrealities and denials.

           The fuzzy grays
                        Distilled down to
                                        Clear, crisp, merry
                                                       Black and white

    I love the way the poem itself dances on the page.
