The Rough Edge of Darkness


Cruising along a tangent spectral line as the sun’s first rays kiss the troposphere, we look into our Brocken Spectre at eye-level as if caught in a purple limbo between night and day and we bear witness to the spectacle of dawn over the Three Sisters… Light shines forward; light reflects backward, upward, and downward; light bends in all directions; light illuminates and projects…Light has direction and resolve as it constantly moves forward…But darkness has no path; darkness has no direction; darkness is ambiguous and irresolute as it marks only the void hidden behind the light…While we may perceive the void of darkness, we can only see it along its rough edge as it is illuminated by the light of day.
