“Nature’s Dare”

“I saw these images and thought these thoughts. Nature harrowed me with her beauty. She attacked me and dared me to master her. As the sun, she flaunted her flames, born of a billion filaments of micro-light, a fusion of hydrogen to helium, an extrusion of the vivifying heat, the dazzle, the brilliance of all that was most real, merging a quintillion atoms to form a yellow star that dwarfed my imagination. She painted like a master artist, never failing to arrange her palette for the perfection of subtle impact, never jarring, never stroking the dissonant curve, or dabbing the incongruous blob of pigment. She was the queen of synesthesia, for her colors came in melodies, her harmonies were sung in tones and the rich fusion of hues. Her light sang to me. Her hushes engorged my manhood. Her whispers made me yearn. Her silence made me cry inside, in silence, for the mergence and union she bespoke.”
