What an amazing poem... and capturing of a moment. I think it can be evocative in different ways for different people, according to their experience. For me it is the last look before the moment of death...I have seen this, a brightening, lightening, softening, that nothing else accomplished, especially in someone hardened. But-- for another it could be something else-- the result of the beginning of a life in another place, with someone else, a new project, where years and troubles drop off-- in any case the fact that it can mean more than one thing is part of its power.
