a blue-white bolt
see it
the blinding flash
that illuminates the heavens
feel it
the electrical charge
that physically alters the ionosphere
itís tangible
itís tactile

it splits the atmosphere
like a river splits the land
only momentarily
and like a river
it has itís branches
itís tributaries that
feed it
energize it

it is coupled with sound
an undiminished timbre
a resonance that makes
the earth beneath you quake
for a moment
but you feel it
itís real
itís undeniable

two powerful forces
in conjunction
assail your senses
fear
apprehension
awe
beauty
internal and external
experience the might
of our celestial parents
and be humbled

Enotneicna~
Touring the archives tonight and came upon
this lovely piece.

'it is coupled with sound
an undiminished timbre
a resonance that makes
the earth beneath you quake
for a moment
but you feel it
itís real
itís undeniable'


Such power in the work !
Wonderful imagery.
