Day 25 – April Poem A Day Challenge – 2021

My ‘thought’ poem is inspired by the Northern Lights and if we’re lucky – tonight if it’s a clear night we’ll be able to see them!

Space odyssey

I could watch the
Clock count it’s
way down
Through a night
Of aimless
But the northern lights
Are here to dance
That Aurora borealis
Even she’s unraveling
She’s gone and
Had herself a
Solar flare
Untangling herself
Into a storm burst
Allowing one small glimpse
In a one night only affair
She’s carved her place
In the universe
Big and beautiful
No self-conscious anxiety
In that one
Flinging herself across the sky
A swath of indigo emerald
Amethyst glory
Makes me want to
Play an aria or a
rock ballad perhaps
To accompany her
