Swept by solar winds
In a wondrous flight
Reaching like a rainbow across the night
Touching every heart
Healing every soul
With eternal light.

Superb! I really like the way bear and aurora seem so intimately linked, like one is coming from the other, but they're not blurred or confused, just connected in some subtle, existential way. I happen to love polar bears too...they're quite predatory, but also incredibly cute. I have no idea how they pull that off, but it's marvelous! I also like the fact that they're a natural marvel. I remember seeing a documentary once, about Siberian polar bears. It was your usual well-produced documentary, but I particularly remember seeing a mother polar bear and her cub. She was perfectly motionless, looking at something, and from the angle at which she was captured, she looked a bit like a snow drift with a nose! I've always liked them since seeing that! This ranks right up there with the snow-drift with the nose! That's a good thing!
