Under a Black Diamond Sun,

a green tree mountain

In the valley below

2 rivers one carries the coming black night

the other the sunfire

of day giving way

I stand between them

they merge to carry me home

turning I see him coming

home goes in the front door

I the back  we merge

as two people who each

 carry home

From the Artist, Zach DeRuiter:

I made the picture on wood by chipping in the landscape and star with my wood working tools then burning the landscape for its shading. For the aurora, I used different colored dyes to stain the wood. Finally, for the star I used black paint.
