Arora Borealis, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @brianrrs37)

Maybe he was a Gogh getter
Inspiring his “Northern Lights”
Was Anne Sexton possessing me?

When I laid eyes on his strokes?
The dancing Double Dutch neon
Tesla neon green plasma, dominating

The forest that does not exist
The forgotten peak on the horizon
Jealous of the dark forest I’m lost in

Poltergeist fog, hugging the ground
Undulating in and around no motion
No sound, but like the sky dancing

In isolation, and the sun,
Hiding in the background
It can’t compete with the dance it started

It can only watch from a distance
And the forest makes my skin crawl
I want nothing to do with it at all

It would be a great place to make a grave
For your victims, a nowhere place
Where screams can never be heard.

And the lights, ignore your fear
They know you are mesmerized
They know you can’t look away

The poltergeist white, makes you prey.

I just saw a wonderful painting by an Curt Pendley . It reminded me of Van Gogh’s “The Starry Nights” and knowing Anne Sexton wrote a poem about it, I decided to take a shot at this guy’s painting. I hope he likes it.

This wonderful painting is by the artist Curt Pendley “The Northern Lights Alaska”.
