Light Me Up



I haven't participated in Jenny's Saturday Centus for a while, so I thought I'd get back on track by responding to her picture prompt this week. I'm a little late because of a baby shower at my house that ended up lasting well into the afternoon (so much fun!), but now I'm ready and rarin' to go. Here's my take on lightning today...

Light Me Up
©2013 Susan Noyes Anderson

When lightning strikes, it calls to mind
the scintillation that I find
in all those buzz sparks you ignite
the moment you burst into sight.

Your voltage hits me like a brick,
lights me up like a candlestick,
leaves me glowing like the moon,
fries me like the sun in June.

What is this sizzle that you bring?
My head goes POP; my heart goes ZING.
My lips burn red; my blue eyes blaze,
and all the world's a fiery haze.

You're smokin' hot, and that's no lie,
a rocket booster to the sky.
A first-class hazard; that's for sure.
But I ain't lookin' for a cure.

;)

Ahh... you could apply the same sentiments to the fireworks we'll see in a couple of weeks. Nothing like watching the sky light up with the love of your life next to you!

Ahhh lightening. When I think of lightening I think of my dad lying out on the trampoline watching the lightening storms that we get here in NM. I was a little scared, but if Dad wasn't, why should I be?

Sounds like someone's in love. Loved the "funny Valentine" nice touch.

Jenny said...

You are so clever!

I love how busy you are.

You are always doing something wonderful!

You're my hero, Miss Sue.

OMG this is a cute one. Personally, lightening isn't my favorite thing. In fact, I like to go hide under my covers then it starts. However, this poem is giving me a new look at lightening. This was very Romantic I would say.
Blessings and hugs!
