dear Aurora...

I wish I could capture the beauty that is so intrinsically you,and put into words the feelings evoked by watching your dance in the night sky. As I look skywards, standing in the crisp  night air I wonder who else is watching you as I am tonight...

As I watch as you fade from vibrant jade green, to a soft dusky pink in the black inkiness of the sky; the stars twinkling as you wind and wave around them, I imagine I  hear a swishing noise as you race across the great divide...but of course there are no noises that accompany you. The silence adds to your magic light show, and secretly is one of my favourite experiences.

It seems to me, that the colder it gets, the more beautiful and bright you emerge; gracing us with your presence almost daily lately..sometimes I get the chance to see you...altho I wonder how many times I have missed you, by simply not stepping outside into the night..I am always amazed and awed by your beauty; your sheer raw power as you put on a show for all to see.

You are my companion on nights when I am alone, or out walking the puppy in the yard. Some days I get to share you with my guy, which makes it all the more special. It is the best feeling when I get to see the reaction of family members who don't get to experience your daily visits like I do.

I hope there never comes a day where I take you for granted, but I know that one day I will have to move away from the will be a sad day, as I won't know when we will have the chance to meet again. But know this; I will never forget the gift of your natural beauty and the memories of looking towards the heavens, humbled by the fact I got to see you so often. It is something that will stay with me for the rest of my days.

See you again soon my friend,
