Northern Lights


Charged particles paint the sky

Shimmering in blues and greens

Likes ancient spirits sent to dance

And energize the starlit scene


A spinning iron heart pushes back

Against what the sun can hurl

Photons forged in fusion

Flung at our fragile world


With child-like eyes we peer

As ghostly colors fly by

And watch as the Great Artist

Composes the wonder in our eyes


Rare is the beauty to be seen

Within those cold artic nights

Where science melds with magic

In the aurora of Northern Lights

    How beautiful Brad. I would love a chance to see them. It must be something else.

    Love these lines:

    โ€œAs ghostly colors fly by
    And watch as the Great Artist
    Composes the wonder in our eyesโ€

    Hope all is well my friend. Sending love and hugs.

  3. “Where science melds with magic” splendid Brad.

  4. I was always fascinated with Aurora borealis, the northern lights. That’s one sight on my bucket list to see it literally in the north pole. And your poetry about them is as fascinating as them. It’s a blend of science, nature and magic like you speak about them in the last stanzas. The poetry is an ode to them with a recipe of your wonderful words, scientific fact about them, nature and it’s magic. Wonderfully written Brad ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘Œ

  5. Adding on, as this is my favourite topic have you heard or seen STEVE light phenomenon, they are wonderful and fascinating too, something to research and know about
