What Has Light Done for Me Recently?

Beige stones piled atop beige stones on a beach of beige stones...  On a cloudy day or, at noon perhaps, on a sunny day, the visual impact of these stones is nil.

But with the sun just peaking half way over the horizon--a ball of orange flame over the cold North Atlantic out past land's end on Cape Breton Island burnishing one side of these rock creatures and the cobalt clear morning sky lighting the other side, these beige creatures rise up and speak to the wondering eye. In six minutes they cease to speak--the flame that brought them to life quenched by the low cloud of a squall line hurrying across the sea.
