Exposed Shadow

Here is a wacky diamond shaped panel for a video game I’m working on. It’s about an alien that visits earth to sing a song. Here’s the first draft.

It arrived
a pin prick of light.

Slowly unfolding.
We held our breath as it grew.

It became unbearable.
This specter beyond comprehension.
Hanging over our heads.

So we projected on to it.
Our hope, fear, desire, and dread.
It exposed our shadows.

As it became. Until it was shaped all around us.

All at once our cacophony stopped
and it began to sing.
