by northern lights,
I sigh like a whale
stranded in the middle
of a solar storm, muddled
by Earth’s magnetic field.
Separated for so long

from the human
pod, I                         (circum)
navigate                   (relation)
until I flounder
in shallow water,
next breath.

Kim M. Russell, 2017
