I Have Seen Lightning Falling Blue-White (Sonnet) - Poem by Gert Strydom

I have seen lightning falling blue-white,
did see it split a tree into two
did know about the power that hits, the sparks that dance
and then the deafening, dumfounded clap,
there was a small broken universe,
and I did forget of everything else around me,
while birds did flapping call out their despair
while nests, branches leaves sprayed in a big amount
and then I started to wonder about that thunder
if it did come from God or from Satan
or only is but a negative load
that falls from above to below,
but in my incomprehension of God I remain stupid
and daily do search for new better meaning.
