Eternal Race


Crashing
Thunder chases
The sleek lightening, only
A streak but so bright it steals the
Vast sky.

    In the eternal, unending race between thunder and lightning, lightning will always be the winner. Shakespeare has said: There is so much noise and fury signifying nothing.The reverberations of thunder ma be last longing. But lightecomes sudden and finishes its work in a second and vanishes. Wonderful! (Report) Reply

    Brevity in language can often be the source of aesthetic clarity as provided here. It can also inspire longer poems as related ideas are later developed further. My poem Seeds was like this with the second verse existing alone for 5 years until the concept of the 3 stages of ignorance, knowledge and wisdom were developed. Keep up the great writing. Similarly my short poem Listless chill reminds me of your poem. (Report) Reply
