Lightning Bug

Through lilies of white
just at dusk,
dance little bulbs of
light in synchronous fashion.

And this is where dreams
do haunt with a passionate
cruelty.

Little synaptic flashes
much like that of angry
static charges from a raging
storm somewhere deep
within a tortured soul.

A lightning bug
caught within the mind,
trapped in the eye
that forever sees into the night.

Reviewed by The Smoking Poet 7/12/2005
Laura, your poem has such an uncanny twist... I have so enjoyed watching lightning bugs, as a child and now as an adult... but you've given it another perspective, of entrapment and passion and torment... you've made the usual unusual.
Reviewed by Sandie Angel 7/12/2005
The rage of the lightning bug is well-written. Enjoyed.

Sandie Angel a.k.a. Sandie May Angel :o)
