The lightning like a zealous photographer,
rudely snaps at the earth-
naked, ostentatious under all consuming light.
humble under heaven\'s wrath.
Forks varicose downward thundering entreaties for more.
Armies of raindrops counter-melodic,
storming siege upon cowering clay.
Sodden earth pounded into dumb acceptance,
buffeted into submission.
