452 Aurora Borealis [05 January 2002]

as I stood there
looking up at the sky
I thought of you
and the beauty of the universe
revealed itself to me
with the river of light
that flows on certain occasions
ranging from red to green
seemingly ghost-like as
it rolled along across the night
at times the river
seemed to catch fire
rippling with the quickness
of a wildfire on dry brush
at other times this river
became the very pillars of the sky
seemingly to hold it up
keeping it from crashing in
at this moment
do I wish that you were here
sharing this glory of the world
right here with me
I can almost feel you there
your arms holding me tight
your breath warm in the cool night
since you are not with me now
forever in my mind
shall I keep these images
of our glorious celestial riverflow
locked away
so that one day
I can share them with you
