Aurora Borealis Haiku


Dancing Northern Lights

glow painting the evening sky

touch mythic transport



Eskimo legend has it if you sing to and touch the flashes of the Aurora Borealis it will transport you to another dimension or dreamstate to meet ethereal beings.

    very nicely chosen words
    pictured the display of lights beautifully..
    on nature's putting on show
    really captivating.....

    All one needs to transport themselves to another dimension is the Holy Spirit! I find myself stepping out of my physical body a lot. Better place to be I think? But I do like the idea of touching the Northern lights or just being there to view the beauty.
    Ten for this one Miss Lorraine!
    God Bless, Linda (Report) Reply
