Aurora Australis

by Phoebe

I saw the Southern Lights once
as I was travelling to the Bluff
I wasn’t driving so I had time
to feed my eyes.
Far across the Canterbury Plains
on its western horizon -
pulsating, constantly moving
ever changing glowing fantastic
light show mesmerised and hypnotised
and I thought, people should see
this phenomena for themselves
not on the documentary channel;
not on the internet, or in
National Geographic
but for real – with their own eyes
at least once….changes perception.
Really does.

I believe you Phoebe and you have versed it well. Now I want to see them. I saw the Nat. Graph. Comp.etc... like you said with one's own eyes it would be so different, thanks for sharing.

        Judging by the Aussie/Ireland result - I think they've got the message Paul.Smile.P.
