Elizabeth Koning

“A Scene from an Unknown enlightenment and Luminous Land. Noticing the details, light, shapes, colors, textures, people, trees and flowers. Everything around me looked bright and different. A stunning girl, blinded by the Light. A Solar Eclipse in roughly equal colors and proportions. Some of its energy is reflected and some are absorbed.”
