postcard from the northern sky





we share buttered toast 
         and warm mugs of coffee & tea

sky is blazing storm 
         colorful stardust, weaving of lights

over mountains with ancient trails
         and lakes, silent choir of blue

we are awed by sacred-
         swept by immeasurable tides-  

universe's sky dance
         a glimpse of heaven's door-

and you- 
         wish we can stay here forever-

  3. That is a sight I have long wished to see. Silent choir of blue and awed by sacred are the lines which particularly resonated with me.

  5. This is such a peaceful postcard poem, Grace. I like the layout very much - it emphasises the open space of the place. I love the phrases'weaving of lights' and 'silent choir of blue'.

  7. 'silent choir of blue' - lovely!
    There is something wonderful about the sky at night, from dusk and thereafter. Heaven streaked across the sky at dusk is the most wonderful sight.

  10. Still have memories, of a trip to Edmonton, Alberta, in 1980, visiting family, mesmerized by brilliance of the nighttime sky and a thunderstorm, I witnessed there. Thank you, Grace, for bringing back these memories, for me.

  13. The quiet of the moment, along with the aurora shining above, makes it seem like an otherworldly experience. It would be incredible to see the Aurora. Hope you get to

  16. wow. You got the universe in there. Lovely, Grace. the imagery was beautiful and evocative. Will you be able to see Northern Lights when you are in Alberta? They dipped down to central New Jersey when I was a girl and we lived in the countryside. It was like green taffy ribbons shimmered in the pitch black sky.

  24. This is my favorite section:

    "silent choir of blue


    we are awed by sacred-
    swept by immeasurable tides-


    universe's sky dance"

    (You misspelled "northern" in the title.)

  25. Ah, romantic again. Very sweet. Great for a postcard, and a fun memory. I've not seen those lights -- and hope to someday with my lover. I am sure I would want to stay their forever too.
