northern lights - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The lights blazed in the silent sky. They moved in great swaying bands of colour like a living organism. On some nights they would resemble the swirl of a nascent rose that had begun to open, sometimes it was a great river, and sometimes it was great lines descending to earth like the landing lights of a UFO. The colours were utterly brilliant and pure. The vibrant shades were in perpetual motion, dancing, flowing, changing shades. After the Northern Lights I could never be so impressed with fireworks any more. I could still marvel at the craft and the cleverness of their design, but nothing could beat this, it was the greatest show on earth.
When she looked up at the sky, she saw a ribbon of color. Streams of emerald danced and twirled in the space between the stars.
