Bathed in Light

The Painter in his StudioPainted in light. Exposed by movement.

Hand held, relinquishing its source.

I — more than image — laugher’s captured secret

Yours — caught in frame. Time’s ultimate resource.

 

In nightfall brushed onto your darkened pallet,

Seduced by skyscapes I am bathed in light —

The huntress carrying with pride her sallet

In patterned choreography for you I’m dight.

 

The sound of the shutter falling.

In lemon gold, illuminated from within

Antithesis. Desire stalling —

A momentary doubt sketched therein.

  3. I sometimes have to read things backwards, hoping that the reference will give me a clue to the meaning of the word. Like: ‘Dight’ Funny though. ‘Anti-thesis. Desire stalling-‘ I got that part right away! Your level of passion is almost beyond belief!

    Had not heard of a “sallet” before. Paints quite the picture, haha.

      • Or champagne. Not really sure yet, as I make it up as I go along… haha…

        Ain’t no storyboarding going on here… LoL.. 😉

      • It is odd to find a military helmet I am not familiar with.

        When I was hurt I volunteer moderated at a website dedicated to modding the Total War Series. They had over 300,000 members, the biggest fan website for that game.

        It’s a british company that publishes it, haha.

        And you’d be surprised how doctoral candidates who like modding a historical game about Rome can troll each other about inaccurate historical references and representation in game of Vercingotorix’s helmet being inaccurately modeled in game…

        Truly astonishing display of geek power. haha.

        And I had to know what was trolling and what was not…

    Basically smart geeks can troll other geeks hard while appearing quite innocent, haha.
