a solid state
The Creative Chronicles of Dave Stancliff
Prose and Poetry
a solid state
Northern lights and purple nights
aurora borealis colors in the night sky
a palette for the gods to paint
forests and plains forever green
the most beautiful day ever seen
flowing fields of verdant grass
grassy knolls en masse
under the sun’s brilliant sheen
lies a blanket of emerald green
Two campers huddled by a fire trying to stave off freezing temperatures at the lower rim of the Grand Canyon one night, when they saw quite a sight…
an old Indian was walking on air beneath the bright moonlight, casually strolling alongside the ruby red ridge without making a sound, and not even looking down…
One camper told the other who was his brother that the man they saw was Levi Levi of the Hualapai, the last great chief of the Mountain Tribe who still protects his people and gives them pride…
and who inspired a source of income that is now worldwide…
… called the Skywalk, a trail shaped like a horseshoe with a steel frame and a glass floor, to some tourists delighted horror, with sides that project 70 feet from the rim, it’s an attraction that brings them in
and the two campers let the fire dim, as they slipped into sleep dreaming of walking Skywalk’s scenic rim.
here’s to saluting a beautiful night
with a shifting palette of colors so bright
hail, Aurora Borealis!
your show is like no others
your gas particles shoot into the night
colliding with gas atoms and admitting light
emissions from atomic oxygen flow
causing a greenish and dark red glow
the stream of particles across the sky
flow freely and are pleasing to the eye
