The light whose smile kindles the universe

"La gloria di colui che tutto move
per l'universo penetra, e risplende
in una parte piu e meno altrove"

- Dante, Paradiso I. 1-3

The universe as a shattered mirror. In it, a dark figure moving, its most mundane gestures multiplied and distorted into something profound, something ineluctably beautiful.

The title is, of course, from Shelley's Adonais. Poetry reflects from page to page.
