the bodies in dawn light, were simply forms;
the landscape seemed abstract, unreal.
It did'nt look like corpses, trees, or sky,
but shapes on shapes against a field of gray and in the distance a source of doubtful light, itself still gray and close to darkness.
There were a thousand shades of gray, with colors--some blue perhaps and maybe green--trying to assert themselves against that gray.
In short, it looked like nothing human.
But the sun broke from the horizon soon enough and we could see exactly what we'd done.
