Collage 405

"The sun had only just appeared in the clear space under a cloud when the wind died, as if not daring to ruin this lovely summer morning after the storm; the drops were still falling, vertically now, and all became still. The sun came out completely, appeared on the horizon, and vanished into the long, narrow cloud that stood above it. A few minutes later, the sun appeared still more brightly on the upper edge of the cloud, tearing it's edge. Everything lit up and glistened. And along with this light, as if in response to it, cannon fire rang out ahead." -p. 651 in Pevear/Volokhonsky
