****Edidted***** This is my favorite post of 2008 I am playing along with TIP Junkies Talk to me tuseday. Go there and tak a peek at others best post of 2008.
Last night I got a phone call from Kadie just after I had gotten all snuggled in to my bed she was coming back into town and said the northern lights were amazeing and that I should go look out the window. I thought no way would I be able to see them. I went to the window anyways and saw nothing. I then decided to look out our back window and sure enough you could see the northern lights dancing there magic. I stood there in utter Awe at the beauty I was seeing. I was amazed at the different shapes and colors that were swirling across the night sky. The Aurora Borealis kept getting lower and lower it was almost like it was right on top of my house. I decided to enter the cold night as I stepped out on to my back patio I felt the magic take over. I started dancing with the lights . I somehow felt warm engulfed in their beauty. I felt the cool wind on my skin and as I danced with the lights. I swear I could here singing a soft sweet melody. My eyes were filled with tears as I just swayed to the unknown melody. I felt so many amazeing emotions at that moment. I soon realised I was not alone I felt that William and Marie were with me. I could see there silhouettes in the darkness I believe it was Marie that I heard singing. Nothing was said we all just were just there dancing with the lights. It was very reverent and magical all at the same time. It was almost like for that moment all was right with the world. I kept taking deep breathes as if I could some how breath in the magic and keep it deep with in me. I started to shiver from the extreme cold and the lights started to shift towards my neighbors house and I new for now the magic was over. I reluctantly went back in my house got back into bed and just laid there wondering if I dreamed the whole thing.
I have heard many different legends concerning the northern lights. One being that the lights are spirits of Children playing ball . How sweet is that.. I can see how people would think that the lights are the spirits of those who have passed before them. For me it was definitely a spiritual experience.
My Question of the day.. Have you ever seen the Northern lights? My other question do you know of any of the legends associated with them?
