Aurora Borealis

Her aqua skirt flows in the sky,
Like curtains of the gods they play;
A Monet brushstroke low to high
- Like life itself they go away.

But for now they dodge and weave
As in a phosphorescent pool;
A flirting dance before they leave,
Behind a veil of colored tulle.

Behind the veil are sapphire eyes,
Behind the skirt, there lies the night.
The curtains are a brief disguise;
Seductive show of pure delight.

Now deeper to the heavens drawn,
Within the night, before it's gone.

    I should like to use your poem Aurora Borealis in a book of images I am creating about light and colour. Would I have your permission?

    Here's an example of how a neutral, blind panel of judges would choose your work over you-know-who's stuff. It's not even a contest if judged by a neutral panel. The 3rd line is a real treat, there is an overall cohesiveness and understanding of syntax throughout the poem, a wonderful blend of concrete and subjective imagery, lending to so many possible metaphorical interpretations by the reader .... or the reader can digest it straight-up, and still walk away with a nice reading experience.
