She is Nacreous

she has lustre
and the pearly inner surface
of the strongest shell

she is iridescent
with skirts and wings
of gossamer

she can illuminate
when she is low, still glow
in vivid colours

she is rare
her clouds reflect light
between sunset and sunrise

she is reminiscent
of an oil reflection
in a petrol puddle

she is opalescent
and wishes upon
the horizon
