lightning arrives with
thunder to shatter darkness
one flash at a time
From far away it calls to me.
Clouds brewing across the sea.
With rage at each stage it rumbles and with that sound,
water from the sky will tumble.
It is the ultimate rage that you cannot cage.
Lightning will flash and day will turn to night.
Fierce winds will blow and waves will grow.
In its wake, devastation it will surely sow.
In time its force will dissipate.
Its anger subside.
But to those who bear its brunt.
Alas, time comes too late and their fate is sealed.
With damage done, they can only pray their wounds will heal.
