I gazed into the lights tonight. Watched the spirits of animals dash through the waves of green and pink hues, running and dancing through the night sky. I watched as the glow washed back and forth upon the tapestry of stars, like ocean waves upon a dark beach studded with diamonds. I marveled at the beauty that was before me, and my heart reveled in the knowledge that I... am among the fortunate few to bare witness to the Earth singing as the sun reaches out to caress her with its rays in the deep of those intimate hours.

Snuggled into my jacket against the cool night air, I watched the display, and a sense of peace and wonder fell upon me that I had not felt for ages. My thoughts drifted about as my eyes drank it all in like a shipwrecked sailor who'd finally landed and found a fresh spring. I thought of where I'd been, and how I'd gotten to where I am today, and I thought of just where I am now and where I intended to go... and I realized that no matter what I encountered and experienced in my journeys, as long as I was still able to sit a moment and take joy in spectacles such as these, I was going to be alright. I accepted my fate, whatever it may be.

And as I lay upon the hood of my car that had become my throne as I bore witness, I turned my gaze directly above myself only to see...
Those same rays of light I'd been watching had also been dancing above my head the entire time, and were now arranged in the shape of a corona, sharp straight beams that radiated out for miles from this circle above my head...

In that moment, I was a King

CanadianDesperado's Profile Picture
CanadianDesperado

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
Canada
Amateur artist and photographer, brony, and traceur. Bit of a cowboy, as well as rambler, gypsy, and philosopher. I have a diverse family tree, to say the least, and I think that's where I get my many diverse interests from, but who really knows. Oh, and I play guitar, but don't expect any epic ballads from me, I ain't much of a musician.

Not too bad. About the worst part is, again, the lack of usable internet, but otherwise I far prefer it to living in town.
