Illo Friday: Green

The Stars turn around the pole, and the moon colours the night,
But that star is fading that should be my guide.
Now, if through the repeating shadows, my own star should appear,
No longer will my mind know the darkness of grief.
You to me are Lucifer, who must banish the night.
Without you day is night to me, with you night is splendid day.

"when kaleidoscopes color the night"
MS Paint
(orig. 970 x 590)

note: text above is an excerpt from the "Lost Love Letters" of Heloise and Abelard. Through their impassioned writings unfolds the story of romance, adoration, devotion and grief, from its reckless, ecstatic beginnings through a public scandal, an enforced marriage and its devastating consequences.

Somehow, their tragedie inspired this illo which I did just now.
