Lightening in a bottle
is what is needed
capturing moments such as
these seeming rare and
rarer splendors and awes
for what they are
rather than what we’re
told or fed by
screens and talking heads
while humanity runs amok.

Boomcrack following flash counting
five seconds per mile
distant but nearing now
we walk to the
clearing, wait and watch
but we have no
bottle until you spy
a dusty Vernor’s ginger-ale
emptily peeking through moss
I raise it, hopefully.

Salutations and Greetings to Moonwashed Weekly!
