Aurora

CNN Travel, Okarito, South Island, New Zealand

My wish is to see the Aurora in New Zealand next year. Here’s my ode to it.

Leaping across the velvety sky

With the gods of wind, dancing

Over the wilderness into the deep South

Where all is quiet and still

Tonight, the Aurora

Lights my heart, lifts my hopes

And frees my spirit.
