Aurora Borealis

As the colors swam across the sky

pink, green and blue dancers

blazing elusive trails through the stars

they seemed to shoot right through me

and lift everything I’ve ever felt into their arms

– how could they fly so effortlessly?

the pain and bruises, joy and mundane

lost lovers and missed opportunities

childhood memories and pending dreams

still lingering in my drying veins

vaporized into a single thread of sighing crystals

nimbly floating higher over the moonscape hills

finding their way towards heaven

aboard the northern lights
