Deep in the shady sadness of a vale
Far sunken from the healthy breath of morn,
Far from the fiery noon, and eve's one star,
Sat gray‐hair'd Saturn, quiet as a stone,
Still as the silence round about his lair;
Forest on forest hung above his head
Like cloud on cloud.
  No stir of air was there,
Not so much life as on a summer's day
Robs not one light seed from the feather'd grass,
But where the dead leaf fell, there did it rest.
John Keats, Hyperion

The memory of you emerges from the night around me.
The river mingles its stubborn lament with the sea.

Deserted like the dwarves at dawn.
It is the hour of departure, oh deserted one!
Cold flower heads are raining over my heart.
Oh pit of debris, fierce cave of the shipwrecked.
Pablo Neruda, A Song Of Despair

Who Are You, The Who

Comfortably Numb, Pink Floyd

White Room, Cream

John, the appearance of the by you depicted cave is that beautiful that it can't be of an a terrestrial origin. If so, one should guess who's the person sitting there too. It can't be Saturn because this person has white hair instead of gray hair as mentioned in the first poem, 😁 Makes your render not only to a beautiful but also to an intriguing one. The solution depends on someones imagination however.
Poems, and music-links are per usual very well chosen. Kudos, again!

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

Such sadness in this image and of course despair.
I would not like to be there, Either in reality or within the feeling portrayed.
I did go deep into a cave once. I thought it would be a great adventure. I did not like it ! I will never understand the attraction cavers feel.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
