Across the Fields

Across the fields I stare into the night, Waiting for a grand and glorious site. For the site that I was about to see, Was worth the wait, and patience was the key. A storm was brewing towards the north, I sat and waited for it to come forth. The cool wind cut to the skin, As my soul leaped from within. The smell of rain begin to fill the air, I was here for a reason I didn’t care. Set up in the bed of my truck, Camera in hand hoping for some luck. Just as expected it came in a flash, Lightning streaked followed by a crash. I stood in awe as I looked across the field, Nature at work, God’s art revealed. The field of cotton lit up like winter snow, I Grabbed my camera but was to slow. I was taken by the beauty and forgot to click, To capture this site you have to be quick. The night progressed on as I stood in awe, Until the storm begin to withdraw. I still remember that wonderful night, I’ll never forget that beautiful site. The way the cotton lit up with every strike, Reminds me of God’s beauty, strength, and might. By: Nathan Bane Leccese © All Rights Reserved 05/12/2009

i can completely understand the beauty and quickness of God's wonders. great job using imagery to evoke emotion. If you could only retool this poem to iambic pentameter it would scream victorian naturalism. Wow a great write!!!

The power of both God and nature shine in every light that rips across the sky. Love the way you narrated this experience in verse form.
