Fay Slimm.

Turbulence.

 

 

Turbulence.

 

Shallow drapes of soft-lit cirrus
billowed and barred like wind in silk hems

vertically swaying.

Glimpses of cracks in blackness
grew into Gods dancing at whim with satin

streamers waving.

 

The greenish-white curves
in pre-dawn sky were at once unnerving

and yet exciting.

Northern Lights in a modest
display made the heart leap when lit darts

queue to start colliding.

 

Firmament turbulence produces
flourescence which leaves viewers gasping

with plans to come back

again and again

and

again.

    this is so good.. it lit up my day...

    I went to Iceland specifically to tick the aurora borealis off my bucket list... missed them by about ten minutes...

    • Fay Slimm.

      What a sad disappointment to have gone all that way and missed the show by minutes - - so glad my few words brought at least a bit of light to your day Nev. - - we can dream though eh -- as I did when I wrote it........x

      Fay you certainly lit up the page with this write. Beautiful.

      • Fay Slimm.

        How kind of you to say so my friend - thank you so much for this lovely comment on my few words.

        Good write Fay. I too went to Iceland, but didn't get the right end of the stick. They said 'We have no aurora here; it's a supermarket!' Doh!

        • Fay Slimm.

          You were in a fix then my friend.......... so pleased you enjoyed the read about the glorious aurora.

        • Suresh

          Your imaginative write has been my desire for a long time. Your title is though extremely apt, as what makes our heart leap, is a sinister dance of turbulent particles.
          Wonderful image and words in accompaniment.

          • Fay Slimm.

            Yes I agree Suresh - the dance so fervent and wild must surely make all hearts race who are there to view the sinister scene. I too should love to view this colourful performance yet once would hardly be enough.

            Fills the page with joy - super write Fay.

            • Fay Slimm.

              You chose a right word to describe the experience of seeing the sky dance with vibration - - - what a sight the aurora must be to those able to watch it's performance........ thanks Michael for your lovely comment.

              Thanks Fay, feeling a bit down today, you brought a little brightness into my day. Bill

              • Fay Slimm.

                Am humbly happy to know my words painted you a brighter day Bill..... colours are potent in themselves but the aurora is such a mystic performance and so pleased you felt its power in the read.

                Wonderful write Fay, you took me there and I saw that wondrous sight. Thank you.
