Thought the Dylan Thomas poem appropriate for this creation.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight

Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.

Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Dylan Thomas

    a really awesome shot. Yes, it is as though Thomas wrote his piece for your piece.
    It is one of those “Gosh I wish I took this picture” photos.

  • wow, thank you for the wonderful comment lanii, the words and the final creation just seemed to go together, for the life of me i can’t recall what came first insofar as the inspiration, maybe it was his poem
