Chicago Lights

A black sky covers
her starry night
in a rainbow of lights
shining through
her chocolate-colored eyes.

Lightening and thunder
rage a spark
to harbor her energy
in a spectacle of
candlelight dinners
and streaming colors
to reflect her iris
growing through
the late-night fog.

She looks in the distance
of light beaming in rays
of rainbow colors
and sees his eyes
slipping away with
the faces of the moon
dragging along the night
until the sun breaches
her chocolate-colored eyes.

Only in Chicago
she sees his light
moving in motion
with the rotation
of his words spiraling
in the waves of Lake Michigan
and rumbling with the tune
of street cars
and a sea of traffic.

She takes the iris
floating in the riverbed
of the Chicago River
and picks petals
falling in the light
of rainbow colors
to remind herself
of words left
in the moment of
candlelight dinners
and streaming colors.

Ah, only in Chicago
she will see the light.
