Fay Slimm.






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

cue to start colliding.


Firmament turbulence produces
flourescence which leaves viewers gasping

with plans to come back

again and again
