Glittering aurora,

You light up the dark northern sky.

Mysterious, enigmatic, spiritual,

Your dazzling show of majesty

Equals any rival sight

Found on this earth.

Glittering aurora,

You take my breath away.

Showy, stunning solar-borne

Magnificence, oh stay

A while today.

Glittering aurora,

You appear silently like

An elusive ghost in the air.

Green fingers pointing,

Painting the sky.

Glittering aurora,

Your indefinable beauty

Haunts long after you

Have gone.

  3. What a magnificent ode to aurora borealis. Truly beautiful, Jenny. I’ve been doing a lot of research for my upcoming novel which has several references to aurora borealis and aurora australis in it so reading this was quite refreshing this morning=)
