Title of Work: I See Light
Medium: Archival Pigment Print
I See Light
Light from the vast universe,
through the darkness of endless space,
Light from creation, the origin of time itself,
penetrates the earth's atmosphere.
Here it comes ---
Through crystals suspended on threads
from the center sill of my friend's kitchen window.
it travels to the surface of her refrigerator.
Light waves/light particles, visible/invisible
bent and separated into distinct wavelengths,
energies and colors:
ultra violet, violet, blue, green,yellow, orange, red,
unseen infrared, microwaves, radio waves and x-rays.
Amazing rays are discovered and appreciated
with wonderment by my own eye,
an extraordinary system of rod-cone sensors,
transparent living lenses, and neuronal architecture.
My brain decodes the color and creates
a unique rainbow perception of it all.
Recorded here with my camera and etched in memory,
Is evidence of Divine Presence in the beauty of light.
