>Aurora Borealis

>

we stood together
almost silently
with mutual awe
for the celestial
apparition
pointing with
guiding words
of wonder as
the glowing curtain
danced and skipped
in the northern sky
like a nervous ghost
its translucent
evening gown
tucked and furled
in the folds of
the wind
we stood together
straining to see
the mystery
of us
for my son Nathan
