Lightning

Clouds like steel wool

Rub and create sparks

That plummet to the earth

Splitting a tree into tinder

Or a transformer to molten steel

It may scorch the ground

Set fire to the forests

The clouds move on, chastening

Their charges loudly

And they spark again

Onto themselves and the land
