She can because she thinks she can.

Rang with crickets,
dipping white patterns
in the dark, glowing
like moon light, on and
off glowing like moon
light yellow flashlights,
Moon light under water, moon
light in the joy of green and
gold twilight poured into the
night around the moon. They
dance like stars, swarms
of tears in the eyes, yet
a smile comes into view.
