"The Painting" of AURORA

ROMAN
AURORA
GODDESS
Daybreak
Sunrise
ChaCha!

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

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

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

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

Eternal youth forgotten
Aging eternally
Grasshopper
Aurora makes his fate
ChaCha!

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

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
