  • Oooh, aah, fireworks lighting
    up the sky; rockets shoot
    into the air sending
    chrysanthemums shapes, to
    soaring heights, bursting out
    spell-bound I look upwards
    into the cascading
    rain, like the aurora
    borealis as solar
    winds stream away from the
    sun at high speed along
    the lines of magnetic force
    from earth's core flow through the
    magnetosphere. Northern
    Lights I will never see.
