Northern Lights vs. Southern Cross

Flickering enchantment. Chase it. You won’t believe it.

Gone by the time you arrive. Tantalised by the promise, unfulfilled.

Bright celestial body. Constant. Mapped.

Captured by another. A butterfly displayed in a jewelled case.

Fixed in place never to be shifted. Right there, but not here. 

Stuck on the equator. Between the Poles. Magnetic opposites attract.
