northern lights This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

on nights like this
I let wistful dreams
carry me away

my eyes are wide open
gazing intently upwards
yet
I don’t see
the violet
glow in the dark stars
on my ceiling

I see
aurora lights
illuminating
the ebony sky

the iridescent ribbons
meander through
a splash of stars

My body is unaware
of the quilt beneath me-
no, I am shrouded in
a coat of vegan leather
I treasure the
snow that
melts as it brushes my
eyelashes;
the sweet scent of
smoldering firewood
the sharpness of
the crystalline air

and
there’s silence
except for

Our
breathing
