Lightning Laughs

clouds extend a high five to each other
crowding and swirling
into a gray frenzy
worse than subway pushing

lightning laughs, choosing her tree.
a tall mighty oak, a hundred years old.
In seconds she splits it in half
zapping it with a blast that scares the family inside the house

oozing with power she grins at the clouds
reminding them who is boss

Thank you Maureen. I am listening to thunder and adoring the concept of a big flash of lightning right now.

That's you, Caren. Always the boss. Hope you've calmed down now.

I am getting more calm. Went off pain pills two days ago. No longer in "La la" land.

Vintage Caren Krutinsger, esp. those last two lines. You've got me grinning too. Could the lightning's personification person possibly be you?! ~ gw

Yes, of course, it is always me. Always. HAHAHAHAHA! (Maniacal laughter now). You know Trixie has enlisted assistant muses.

Thank you Heidi. It looks like a storm today, thus, this is what I came up with in honor of the possibility or it, which I am always looking forward to, as no one loves a storm as much as I. I am especially fond of lightning and adore thunder!
