the growing overuse of lens flares

and the bandings rent 

gossamer acquainted 
with time

and time 
having reached a long pause

comes a moment 

for quiet 
elongated along a wide, pale hall

this winter has been aired out 
of reaches

and unharried

a lifetime of voyage 
vaguely dreamt, 

ages upon ages 
cast diminutive

japed, sun

  1. Lens flare is the light that is scattered via internal reflection, scattering caused by material inhomogeneities in the lens, or other image formation mechanisms. It manifests itself as a haze or as visual artifacts (starbursts or rings). It is often caused by a bright lightsource, such as shooting directly into the sun. Although most of the time lens flare is unwanted, it may be deliberately used to invoke a sense of drama. It was one of the first special effects developed for computer graphics.
