A POEM TO DIGITAL IMAGERY

Note: In twilight pixels change back and forth from color to darker color as the sky fades and as I frame the scene for my next shot on the LCD screen of my digital camera.

"I often think the night is more alive and more richly coloured than the day."
Vincent van Gogh to his brother Theo Letter 533, Arles, 8 September 1888

REAL TIME
On the edge of darkness
I have seen the twilight sky
do it's digital dance
in real time --
pixels pulsing from
cerulean blue to black
on my LCD screen --
vanGogh's deepest colors
outside his cafe in the evening
or his starry starry night
