"The Painting" of AURORA


Personification of dawn
Flying across the sky
Wings in flight
Renewal each morning
Announcing the arrival of the brightest star

Energy source
The solar wind
Flowing passed Earth,
past and present- moment

The northern lights, Aurora
Cree call “Dance of the Spirits”.
Europe, Middle Ages,
A sign from God

The prince of Troy
A mortal man
A great love affair
Zeus grants immortality

Eternal youth forgotten
Aging eternally
Aurora makes his fate

Energy source
The solar wind
Flowing passed Earth
past and present- moment

Famous writes composed…

“Aurora now had left her saffron bed,
And beams of early light the heav’ns o’erspread,
When, from a tow’r, the queen, with wakeful eyes,
Saw day point upward from the rosy skies”
Virgil~ Aeneid

“Once more the old mysterious glimmer steals
From thy pure brows, and from thy shoulders pure,
And bosom beating with a heart renewed.
Thy cheek begins to redden through the gloom,
Thy sweet eyes brighten slowly close to mine,
Ere yet they blind the stars, and the wild team
Which love thee, yearning for thy yoke, arise,
And shake the darkness from their loosened manes,
And beat the twilight into flakes of a fire”
Tithonus ~Alfred, Lord Tennyson

    This is really original….the “cha-cha”… bringing rythm to the poem.
    Aurora is a wonderful name…derives from “aura”…and so there can appear any goddesss when the darkness has been broken. Those quotes are absolutely wonderful, bringing the shade of an image that is affecting not just Nature of Earth, but our own nature. And I love vamp-vamp ´s art…it is just so well fitted with your writing….!

  • I love this double image since VampVamp inspired the write she deserves one since her expression is one this gallery page.
    Thankyou for understanding the “cha cha” it is a Latin dance of passion and since AURORA was passionate about love I thought it fitting and too gave the poem rhythm as you stated.
    Rosa thankyou so much! I hold your opinion in such high regard. This has made my day.
