lightning piercing grey

a single glimmer
barely visible
on the distant horizon
blindingly vibrant
for these forest eyes
lately too accustomed to dark
when days blur
and nights shiver silently by
one after another
that shimmering flash rather beguiles
beauty unexpected
a kiss blown upon the wind
as off in the distance
thunder softly rolls in
breath catching in throat
suddenly filled with a growing feeling
remarkably akin to…hope
could there be a brighter tomorrow
and so begins the wait
in this lackluster landscape
and half-hearted rain
