Auroral pipes

Morning sunlight filters through the wispy branches of our neighbor’s tall pines, striking columns of icicles hanging from the eaves of our house. Each gust of aeolian energy stirs the branches, fine apertures that direct bursts of light through the suspended ice. Up and down each irregular column photons dance, sparkling sapphire notes along frozen musical staffs. The only sound emitted is the wind in the towering pines: Pan playing his auroral pipes.
