Emerald Sights

The year was 2005
When I learnt of the Northern Lights
My eager mind absorbing details –
Protons, latitudes, and ions…
Creating the Aurora borealis

Now as I stand with you
Hand in hand
‘neath the emerald green skies
All the science fades away
And all I see is
Your brown eyes, luminous
And my heart shudders
As this moment is
Immortalised in time.
