transcendent dance


the shimmering aurora
a celestial veil
held between
this earth and heaven

its presence felt
when birth is near
and pushed aside
as death appears

in this transcendent dance
the celestial garment
just waiting
to be touched

I saw a picture of the Northern Lights in Finland that has intrigued me.  When I first saw it, I looked at it for a long time and I still have difficulty putting it down.  I thank my friend, Sue, for sharing the picture and for helping me finish this poem.

About Mary Herbert

I am a gentle listener, a woman of few words. My journey through life has been a spiritual one, as well as a physical one. My daughter, Katie, and I thought it would be interesting to combine some of our giftings/talents in a blog and see what happens. Let us know what you think!

    1. Thank you. I have only seen them from the upper midwest. I would love to see them on a very dark night, much further north. It’s interesting how something like the “lights” can spark something within us.
