Moisture Runs Deep
My tears ran in rivulets
And joined with the rain,
Becoming torrents, washing out the pain.
All moisture returned to the sea,
Combining forces, the rain and me.
From deep within the heart of me.
I was in awe looking
At the aurora borealis,
I was so fascinated by the auroral corona.
There was glory all around me
And I was in the midst of many brilliant colors.
There was a display of green, red, blue, pink and purple.
What a skyfire in the heavens!
