Southern Aurora Belle

Scintillating – Word of the Day

Taken some time ago when I regularly visited the town of Esperance, the sun setting in the west, and dazzling the water and my lens with its light.

Southern Aurora Belle

At the telescope once, someone mused,
“Why is it so dark out there?”
“Well,” said I, knowingly,
“There’s simply less reflective matter, and
besides, most sources are many light years away.”
When you entered that crowded room,
dazzling, you lit up the whole place, an aurora,
but your smile was just for me.

Early morning somewhere between Norseman and Widgiemooltha, heading north, it’s autumn, dark rain clouds have covered the sunrise. And as I’m driving along dodging roos and brumbies, and road trains (one which passed me when I was doing over 120), and then there was this. There was no safe place on the road to pull over, and I knew this wouldn’t last long, so I was a fortunate this farm gate was open and I parked in there to soak it up for a few minutes. A revelation on so many levels. Something divine, something natural, a special moment in time, the sun finally finding this gap through the rain clouds, signs of hope, a lot of thoughts running through my head. A revelation.
