They were brimming with sparkling energy
Shimmering with a glow unholy
Crying out for our attention
Puzzlement and enlightenment being their contention
Potent yet translucent
They hovered for a time above the firmament
Until time came, to all's amazement
To call it a night - with eerie contentment!
Thus ended the night of the lights
And no one ever knew what they truly were
of another time or another place
Or simple last throes of a dying earth
unexpected aurora borealis
unpredictable sudden bliss
Or perhaps, simpler still
our heavenly observers
come to rend us asunder...
