Northern Lights

A Winter Romance

Mother nature’s greatest romance:
The kiss exchanged
Between the dark winter landscape
To the bright skies.

Two opposites
Joining as one.
The perfect paradox.

Embodied in the frigid air and short days,
A grand darkness

Enveloped each night by light.

The sky
Dark over the bright snow.

Only in the darkness
Can the coloured lights show.

Mottled with green
Spreading like spilled paint,
Disappearing and spreading again.

Pale lights flicker out,
Vibrant greens and whites reach towards each other

Then lunge away.

Polar opposites;
Opposing magnets forced together.
Light and dark.




Without one another.
