Is this it? Is this the second coming?
-my first thought.
A winter night in Northern Michigan
Many years ago
Teenagers gathered around a bonfire in a large open field.
Then, without warning,
The show began.
Colors swirling and hurling across the sky.
The darkness now danced with lights.
A miracle of nature, unlike anything we had ever seen.
We lay back, laughed and watched.
Then, they were gone.
We landed back on the cold, hard earth with a thud.
Quietly, we stood, wrapped our arms around ourselves and headed back to the house.
Just like that, changed.
