The valley cupped the dim light. Reluctant to surrender the blue hue preventing true shadow. Each tree recognizable in individuality, formed a seamless mass relinquishing nothing. Stars claimed their place above, yet that shallow crater denied the placement of any cowl. The frosted peaks entreated the fading glimmer, boasting their might against that which would hide them. Distinction segued into shape and shape into shadow till they were indistinguishable. The watery shadow lent itself to the indistinct, raising what had lain down. Obtuse became minute and minute obtuse as beauty unveiled itself in new form. The dying giants glimmered above, failing in comparison to the surrendered orb. That beacon that lent itself to another’s strength.
