The Demise of Light

August 14, 2008
By Christine Garibian, Glendale, CA

The sun bleeds
Orange, and
Yellow leaks out of
Its fiery heart.

As my eyes
Absorb these
Strange wavelengths,
My retinas burn.

But I cannot tear
My eyes from
The beauty
Of a dying sun.

Sight is a small
Sacrifice
To see the demise
Of light.
