Lifting the Gauze

sunrise530142

Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted,
and by degrees
the forms and colours of things are restored to them,
and we watch the dawn
remaking the world in its antique pattern.
~Oscar Wilde from The Picture of Dorian Gray

 

Dawn is the time when nothing breathes, the hour of silence.
Everything is transfixed, only the light moves.
~Leonora Carrington

  1. And this, that I found on a note card several years ago:
    “Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.”
    (Tagore, 1861-1941)
