Otherworldly Tempests

The northern lights

stretched from the North Pole

and one winter, I watched them

dance in magical bursts.

The sky flashed with yellows and greens,

and the lights spread across the black sky.

They formed figures, and I watched them

waltz over the stars.

I sat in the car, kneeling forward,

and quiet so they didn’t notice me

as each flash was another incantation

of Mother Nature.

I didn’t want to disrupt the sorcery,

so I slouched down in my chair

and spent the night enchanted

by the northern lights.
