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.
