Auroral Mist [repost]

aurora borealis northern lights

At the edge of rock and sky,
She breathed frozen air
And was energized.
Lights glowed in benediction;
She raised her arms and prayed.
Dancers flowed and twisted,
Magnetized from pole to pole,
Swirling, streaming,
In the green auroral mist.
She had to come to the end
Of the earth to kill the pain,
But instead
Was born again.

  6. I really like this poem! Very beautiful, Paula!

    But, as a literalist (I do have those moments), I got hung up on the “mist” part. As someone who lives in a land with lots of aurora borealis (though not much where I live), I can tell you it’s not a mist. It’s charged particles and they are way above where weather occurs so you actually have to have clear skies to see the phenomenon.
