Poetry: Soul of the Mask, transcribed

resplendent in crimson and mist, the great cosmos swirling around her outstretched hand
(ELE for Skye)

Deep and expansive, the minute changes beat to beat are like the growth of a wild joy

(ELE for Nolan)

shadows peeking around corners, edges melting into the air, somehow shining
(ELE for Aura)
