Saw a bolt of lightning
Streaking jagged down the sky,
A warning that a thunderstorm
Just might be passing by.

It looked both cool and scary
As it flashed to our surprise
And disappeared so quickly
We could doubt our very eyes.

There’s nothing else quite like it
Which can wake us with a jolt
Than the perfect zigzag contour
Of a mighty lightning bolt.

    Lightning's a reminder that the world's a scary place. I think that I would rather have the sun light up my face. Sometimes I get caught on my bike and have to ride like hell. To make it home just like a snail all safe in it's warm shell. Peace. :)
