For Kate, who first told me the Legend of the Lights. :)

The darkness of the night
is split by brilliant Light,
The Auroras are here...
They said They would appear!

The Lights sway silently
and beauty captures me,
The Auroras shine bright...
and I'm awed at the sight!

The colors swirl and change
and patterns rearrange,
The Auroras gyrate...
in my head, thoughts vibrate!

Close my eyes, raise my hands
and hope They understand,
The Auroras come down...
pick me up from the ground!

Leaping into the air
They take me WAY up there,
The Auroras take ease...
They're gentle, and They're pleased!

We're like children at play
we run, jump, dance, and sway,
The Auroras don't mind...
although I'm not Their Kind!

The time for play is done
we both had so much fun,
The Auroras take leave...
and I feel bereft...grieved!

They promise to return
once more, the sky will burn,
The Auroras then glow...
for me, put on a show!

I stare in wonderment
at this startling event,
The Auroras shimmer...
then slowly grow dimmer!

How I wish it would last
but They are fading fast,
The Auroras are rare...
here in our southern air!

"We will be back," They say,
"Don't be filled with dismay,"
Auroras keep Their Word...
look for Them--have you heard?

Thank you Karla for such a beautiful sharing of thoughts and images. This is wonderful. I almost feel as if I am seeing them again. How I miss them. When I visit my daughter I am going to return to Grande Cache to see if I can get one of the books that was written about the legend of the Northern Lights. My memory is horrible! I do recall it was a legend that is past down through the natives in that area. Later this week I'll repost my story, "Am I dead?" A real life experience :-)

Ah Karla, what a wonderful descriptive write, so much so that I can live with missing those aurora's here in NJ. As always, NJ had cloud cover the nights they were around here...Thanks for the "light show",

(((Karla))) Spellbinding and enchanting write, just like the aurora borealis itself! Wonderful tribute to a rare and awe-inspiring spectacle that is rarely observed south of the Artic Circle or Alaska! Well done, Karla; BRAVA for one fine write! Truly enjoyed~! (((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :D Kate will LOVE this; I sure did! What a thoughtful person you are; no wonder you are so loved here! (and of course, by ME!)
