Dawn Volcano: Early Light Over Kapiti

Taken from my favorite roadside stop on my way to work! Looking out over the Kapiti Coast and beyond to Mt Ruapehu at dawn.
This is such a stunning landscape and I feel so blessed to pass this way every day on my way to work... not many commutes have this kind of majesty to be soaked up :-)

In the Empire of Light
the water’s completely dry

floating on a surface of itself
around islands pointed south-southwest

The wind fills it then
with more of itself

according to the rules
which cause parallel lines

to vibrate and cross
less and less

From In the Empire of Light by Michael Palmer (1943 - )

Best Viewed Large On Black - Paekakariki Hill, Wellington, NewZealand [?]
