The Eye of Morning

The Eye of Morning

 

I am the arrow of dawn, and

rise as the archer kneels,

strains his bow, sets the sky ablaze,

dissolves at the borderland

between light and shade, Heaven

and Hell; his firebrands mere crass

cascades of incendiary petals,

guttering in chiaroscuro swells.

Behold the evanescent rose-glow

of morning's opening eye.

Thanks to David and Stu for their generous and encouraging words. I honestly do not know how I generated this image, but in any event, it seemed like an excellent way to start a new day!

All the best,

Chris
