Just Like Lightening

I was cooking
bringing it all together

It began lightening
dinner done

I cruised outside
for the light show

He ate alone
I couldn’t leave

Now I dine
on excellence

It is so good
sharp and peppery

just like lightening


  1. There is no better banquet than excellence!

  2. I sense there is a lot in this poem between the lines. I always get excited by lightening as well--it is a very rare thing here.

  3. I find lightening exciting too. So did Kerry and soo does Bob. I love the image of lightening as peppery - the merging of different sensory channels. I'm glad you found some sensation and excellence for yourself, even though it meant he ate alone. Like Peggy, I feel ripples of meaning under this poem.
