Saint?

I closed my eyes and saw you: the blazing yellow, orange, and red of your necklace, your headdress, your crown. Light shown from all around you, and yet you yourself were a dark cypher, features all in shadow.

I opened my eyes. Closed them again, and there was the sun, an orange sphere, and a golden bird catching hold of it in its talons, dragging it from the sky.
