Ice Age Aurora 

In time you are silent,

frozen in radiance.

An enigma of white

crystallised, you guard with

hostility secrets.

Beautiful and unspoilt,

a volatile rarity,

many men will not brave.

Your violet blue energy,

in darkness a wonder.

Aurora australis,

fossilising an aura

of strange peaceful light.

In green metamorphis,

millions of ages

will pass, as the heavens

do each night above you.

Your mystery will unfold,

Antarctica.
