“A Dream of Winter” by Jaya Prime
No.7 of 36 in the “Spectral Recursion” series
“Dark falls the seasons on turning wheel.
Cold takes the shadows nearest window sills.
Take warmth’s token and make of it bed,
where Bone Frost’s fingers pass o’erhead”
~San Jaya Prime, The Wayfarer’s Songs
Facts: Winter in the Northern Hemisphere is not cold because of how far our planet is from the sun, but because of the angle of the light that strikes us — our planet’s “tilt”. In summer, the light hits us head on, as a spear, then ripples out in photonic waves across the surface. In winter, the light hits us at an angle, and the photonic waves literally splash over the surface — as a stone skipping across the top of a lake — and then back out into space. Add this to the limited hours of photonic exposure in winter, and you will find that frost soon follows. That does not, however, explain how a warm cup of cocoa can melt even the coldest of nights. That’s just magic.
Incept: I pulled the original hyperbolic fractal from the “StarSeed” poster that many already know from my music, then ran it through a few deep dream filters before adding stars, snowflakes, and lens flare.
In the darkest of seasons, find the light that warms you and take it with you.
