VINTAGE WET PLATE SUNRISE Image Art & Fine Art Photography by JO-ANN TOMASELLI
Every morning I have the privilege to witness the sunrise. On occasion I’ll experience beauty so profound it can not be expressed in images alone. On these days I turn to our poets, those inspired or ‘in-spirit’ writers, who provide me a saucer for my overflowing cup.
Kālidāsa was widely regarded as the greatest poet and dramatist in the Sanskrit language around the 5th century.
His plays and poetry are primarily based on the Hindu Puranas which are religious texts that tell the history of the Universe from creation to destruction.
Listen to the exhortation of the dawn!
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and realities of your existence.
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendor of beauty;
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But today well lived makes
Every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day!
Such is the salutation of the dawn! Kālidāsa
