northern lights

look up you said on the shore that night

look up
you next to me pointing upwards into the starry night vangoghlike there they were
the northern lights in sheets and rivulets colors and falls
epiphany of tears and veils
perhaps you drew them out afterwards perhaps all the colors of the world trailed behind you as you moved into eternity
a parting gift as i sat alone that night box of books at my feet shoreward
look up you said
look up gypsy girl
look up
shifting shimmerings against the immortality of the night
life after life meandering curtains of light
