Sunspot

inspired by the Carrington event

                            
predictable            

sunspot 

shattering storm                  

swirling gases of hydrogen and helium

ready to flare

       
predictable from prominences and filaments  

from millions of miles away an aurora borealis is made        

  

beautiful auroras that spanned into the Caribbean 

when the sun touched the earth the newspapers said

  1. Like others, news to me – so thanks – and also for the verse(s). I also read your Pantoum – and enjoyed two different takes on the same – I liked your last line (in both) – suggested to me newspapers in flames (inflamed) by the event.
