~~ the quindecim ~~
As cold temperatures blanket the earth and folk stay inside to avoid its dearth, as the night settles in cold, clear, and calm lights begin dancing, create visual balm teasing the atmosphere--"Come out and play," the majestic phenomenon might say. Hexagonal ice crystals stacking high, shining Northern Lights right up to the sky. A scene not seen in the lower forty-eight 'cause negative temps stay north of the "gate" 'til heaven breaks in frigid explosion midst sudden calm--active implosion. Ice crystals dance, reward the human eye as he--braving elements--views the sky to scan ballet performances up high. Northern Light beauty not commonly seen south of the tundra where cold visions keen. Icy plies frolic midst calm in the sky-- geometric shapes from pillars on high as those--willing to brave the elements-- seeing beauty, breathing the crisp, cold scents gaze upward, inhale, absorbing the calm oozing forth, emitting, scripting a psalm, embracing the soul, mesmerizing view ensconcing lights in the angelic hue of majestic pillars' parallel stance in vertical rhythm span the expanse. As the night lights create unusual scenes across the frigid night, coursing through veins giving life to darkness, shining again.
