A Flash of Lightning


surrounds me

blocking escape

from limiting



Crowds stare

With uncomprehending eyes

I feel relieved

that they cannot read

the recesses of my mind.


Lightning flashes

amidst clusters of stars

and zillions of raindrops.

It perishes with a blast

feared and misunderstood.


I wait for thought energy

to be channelized in small chunks

and illuminate minds.

Of what use is intense light

which does not reach the ground?
