What do you see # 64

Image credit; Timur Kozmenko

( For the visually challenged reader, this is an image of a girl dressed in a red swirling frock walking towards open gates. The gates appear to be of oriental origin and are very tall. From the open gate you can see mountains visible through a cloudy sky)

My lady in red
dancing towards the celestial gates
Searching for starlight
Clouds above the mountains
Heavy with anticipation
She must navigate her way
through the forbidden forest
Scale the mountain
where blue skinned monks
Bottle the special starlight,
said to be more powerful
Than the philosopher’s stone
So many have made the journey
No one has yet returned
Holding a bottle of starlight
Would you search for the magic
that lets you live for ever?
