if only
I could awake
in the arms
of the northern lights …
dancing, dancing

    Go ahead and dance, Nancy! I'm happy this haiku makes you feel that way.

    Thank you, Martin. I'm glad the words seem to dance for you.

    Nice to know the repetition works for you, Marion. Thanks for the comment.
