Cincuenta and Shadorma – April 27, 2015

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What is this sound
just lightning’s lament
this day is done

Its angry voice
makes the hills
tremble fearfully!

Raging storm
So the feast day ends
I wonder …
Are there days
When only the sun shines bright
must rain always fall?

(I wasn’t sure if the cincuenta was 50 characters including or excluding spaces … so I wrote one with spaces not included and the other with them included in the count –)

Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie – B&P Shadorma and Beyond

About Bastet

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)

    Love “lightning’s lament” … especially when lightning laments with with propah spaces and punctuation 😀

    You’re so thorough – one with spaces, one without! 🙂
    Sensing the anger here — and the idea of lightning as a lament is a remarkable image. Stops me dead in my tracks – in a good way! This is potent stuff!

silence is golden, words pearls of wisdom...your comments are treasured!
