Long Exposure 

It feels like months since I’ve seen the aurora borealis and I’ve missed them. I grew up watching them and have always been fascinated. 

I have a few haikus about them from the last year but I have no photos to accompany the post. I don’t understand our camera well enough to master the exposures required. It is a goal of mine when I retire to learn. 

They dance through the sky
Aurora borealis
Welcome back my friends

Inuit legend says they are the ancestors come to reconnect. I’ve seen them dance many times and in several colours  but have never heard them crack and whip as they are known to do.

I have been known to sit up way too late watching them. I’ve sat outside shivering just to feel closer to them but I’m also lucky enough to have several windows in our house that they can be seen from. 

Last nights brilliant moon 
Pales to incredible intense
Show of northern lights 

Marvels of nature 
Compete against human stage 
Sometimes we forgot 

Unfold in the sky
total delight to the eye
