she has one
moment to
impress the
audience
waiting to
see her grand
debut--she
is a new
star in the
celestial
play; darkness
hides her; the
music builds,
leading up
to her cue--
you're on!--and
lightning makes
her nervous,
flickering
entrance; she
leaps from
one end of
the stage to
the other;
back again;
another
pass she makes,
dancing as
she's been taught,
against the
backdrop of
deepest black
she leaps--and
applause shakes
the skies--God
thunders His
approval.

(c) karla dorman, 2003

i was inspired to write this today as
a round of thunderstorms--the first in
almost a month and a half!--passed
through the area.

the lightning was vivid and intense,
but o, so beautiful.

What a wonderful piece. I could see clearly the dancer upon the stage and the second in the sky from your own comment.

We're getting that line of storms now, I think. I posted "Your Footsteps" today at AD but I will be taking some time away to recover now, but I'll be back. You stay inspired, okay?
