Just came back from the movie Eye in the Sky. And I recall Alan Rickman died in January after a brief battle with cancer.
A mix of night and day, Alan Rickman, British actor who played brooding Professor Severus Snape to curious Harry Potter and determined Hermione Granger.
To Alan Rickman:
Awake and see
Cosmic black and trailing stars
Fade at last
Begin in aubergine
Violet-blue, softly flees the night
Kumquat, coral, marigold, then orange
Colors the break of day
Love and ardor
And quickly as it comes, its gone
