Borealis

starry memory
observing constellations
ancient dot-to-dot
the night sky shifted and bathed
the sea with spectral shimmer

Kim M. Russell, 2017

My response to Carpe Diem #1264 Borealis (Northern Lights)

This month Carpe Diem celebrates its fifth anniversary, for which Chèvrefeuille has chosen a variety of themes and prompts from past posts in a trip down memory-lane, as well as music at the weekends.

This Sunday, the first musical prompt, entitled ‘borealis’, is by the composer Peter Crowley. I have reworked a combination of a poem and a haiku I posted last year into a new tanka.
