Illumination from above.

And when we got there . . .

The Hardy Monument – Black Down, Dorset

The torch slipped from my fingers,

plummeted to the earth.

The fragile eye of illumination,

kissing the granite ground beneath.

A splintering of glass,

a kaleidoscope of rainbow shards.

The night now as impenetrable,

as a locked door.
