Northern Light
I am thinking about Northern Oceans today; of haar (sea fog) and the call of the kittiwake; of pink blushing dawns, long daylight hours and blazing sunsets.
I know the Northern Light of Scotland and Alaska. I’ve seen it dancing on the Moray Firth and on the Shelikof Strait. I’ve seen it at the end of the day dipping behind the peaks of Morven and behind the snow-capped mountains of the Alaskan Peninsula.
It is memory and longing, familiar yet far away.
