Above And Beyond
By Curtis Johnson

Above us, lightning was dazzling, blinking, and picturesque.
Blacken sky, moonless and star free; a massive light show!
Like a human anatomy of nerves, spread in every direction.
I wonder the bounty of harnessing such explosive power.

A Storm is brewing, introduced by such thunderous sounds.
Can one even imagine the extent of such awesome treasure?
Below us? A roll, a shake, a quake, and shock waves of terror!
Beyond? Wind, clouds, falling stars; it seems everything moves.

Fascinating and very moving! Amazingly as I read this poem a weather alert hit my cell phone, warning of a severe thunder storm! Lightening is coming all the way to the ground, thunder is blasting, having micro bursts of wind, and it's pouring rain! Your poem fit right in with the weather here in Phoenix, Arizona! Your imagery was beautiful and matched the reality of the storm here perfectly! Just loving it! Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn
