WP Photo Challenge: Converge

For this weeks WP Photo Challenge: Converge,  I thought of many ways to show how things converge but nothing seemed to be “just right”.    Then I notice the night sky and it came to me.

Night sky converging on the sun.

When I took this picture I thought of the poem “Do not go gentle into that good night.  I first heard parts of this poem from the movie Dangerous Minds back in mid 90’s.  I do not know much about poetry, I just know what I like and I like what I believe to be the message in this poem….to keep fighting.

Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.

by Dylan Thomas
