yellow-orange circle of sun rising in lower right corner,   
upturned curve of sunlit green ridge opposite it, lines   
of shadows slanting down to the left across it     
on phone recalling seeing Nicole Kidman at The Four Seasons,  
who's far more beautiful in person than in print or on film   
woman on table next to window looking at slide of Figure 31,   
close-up shot of upper torso with mole on neck, man on left   
wanting to "push window open"     
                               blinding silver line of sun   
reflected across blue-white plane in left foreground, green   
line of swell moving in against cloudless blue sky above it
