Nature's Quiet Vanity

watching the mystifying lights
of an aurora borealis,
I choose to call it
the electrified filament
of nature's soul,

and Benjamin,
calls it science;


experimental gratification
that floats on the breeze
in the shape of a diamond
till mother stops her sweet

at least
for a moment;

then, father
wishes to play with
a demonstration of light,
as a flicker,

parting the clouds and
rumbling the belly
of the sea,

lost to a world of
that just never

not even for the
admiration and envy of
a little boy trapped
within the confines
of blown sand;

and, the rest of the world
sees it merely as
passing storm.
