Blinding stare

Born in distant space and time
The light perseveres.

We meet at the sandy shore
In a blinding stare.

I capture the scene
and quickly leave.

It moves more slowly
Looking for darkness, finding none.

The sun found me on the shore of Waskesiu Lake in northern Saskatchewan.

Ironically, I’m still seeing stars.
