A Lightning Tale

 Lightning sizzles the darkened sky
not asking anyone how or why
brings depth to the moments hand
terrifies every creature and man

 Moves with wild startling speeds
screams with a fire tongue that leads
looses its uncontrolled inner soul
as fury commands its devilish toll

 Lightning the rage starts to succumb
all bow, their souls burnt into one
wiped away from coolness they found
only to be burnt, buried into the ground

 Violence slowly comes to an end
as swirles calm the darkened wind
brings peace with a sorrowed frown
distant echo’s laugh like a clown -

 as lightning tells its tale
