Isle of Skye, Scotland, August 10, 1987

COLORS

(the Aurora Borealis*
seen from Isle of Skye, Scotland,
August 10, 1987, 5:45 PM)

(‘Shifting Shades’ is my allusion
to Life’s ever-changing ‘colors’.
It is my metaphor on the constantly
varying faces and phases of existence;
as color spectrum, as Aurora Borealis.)

soft clouds swirl away
beacon of deep colors
the sky shimmers ablaze
translucent like fire
and brilliant as moonbeam.

(life is a specter –
a spectrum of colors:
changing hues from end to end,
shifting shades at every stage.)

– between
two colors in spectrum
is shifting shade.

– between
two phases in life
is experience.

– between
two faces of existence
is change.

* A colored glow visible late afternoon or at night in high latitudes.
It has the appearance of a fan of ascending luminous streamers
 near the northern horizon, and is supposed to be of electrical origin.
