northern lights dancing across the sky

describes the unique spectacle my twin sister and i witnessed last night here in texas. it is rare to see the northern lights this far south.


will have another opportunity to see 'em tonight when i get off work! there will be another opportunity for people across the united states to see the borealis in places where you may not see them. so, if the sky is clear and starry, with NARY a cloud to gum up the works, go outside, AWAY from lights, and look in the northern sky. then just maybe you'll get the opportunity to see one of nature's unique, if spectacular, phenomenons! :)~

northern lights dancing across the night sky:
wispy, curtain-colored lights sail on gently by.

red, pink, purple, green, blue, orange, white, and yellow~
to see them this far south sure does make one feel relaxed and mellow!

it is a rare occurance when these northern lights do shine this far south,
but the sight of them causes cries of joy and awe from our open mouths.

karla had never seen them before,
but i tried to show her when the questions did implore.

told her to look in the north sky;
and asked her if she saw the colors flowing by.

after a while, she did; she was like a child;
the sight of them caused her to squeal and act a little wild.

it was a joy to watch the joy on her face;
and it was a moment of time that i hope that time will never erase!

i hope to see the northern lights again; such a glorious sight:
a rare occurance, but especially here in texas on a hot, summer starry night!

They are indeed beautiful :) When I was in Norway, the only thing I thought when I was in Norway I thought "Wonder if I've ever been this close to the North star?"

i'm quite familiar with the Lights -- they regularly appear in S Saskatchewan and N Ontario. i've even heard them, on a cold january night.

it is the Sky People dancing -- dance with them -- but do not whistle!

a grand poem for a grand sight

I've never seen the northern lights myself but hope to some day. You'd think we'd see them this far north(Wisconsin). Oh,well.
A very life-affirming poem. I liked it very much.
