Now You Know

She dances between the clouds on silvered wings

Twisting and turning particle-to-particle she swings

In her wake a thunderous applause

Until she reappears again after a pause

Lighting the sky with a dazzling array

The darkest night becomes like day

Bouncing cloud-to-cloud and sometimes to ground

She revels in the power she throws around.

The thunderous applause is impressive here on earth,

But she reminds us, it is she, lightening, that does the work.

So next time you see her dance and careen through the sky,

It is for her thunderous applause; Now you know why.
