Coronal Mass Ejection

Posted By Astropoetry Blog on Monday, 08 August 2011. Posted in Astropoetry Blog

My Facebook messages are being gobbled up
By those ghostly Northern Lights
That inch above the treetops
Fading in and out
Snatching words sent by my friend
Stripping words right out of Facebook
I wouldn’t mind so much
If they’d put on a real show
With dancing reds and greens
But these ghostly comings and goings
In plain white
Aren’t worth missing
My Facebook friend
