NIGHTTIME’S MISCHIEF

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

 

The dark side of the night
storms upon the scene
thrusting swords of light
into the earth 

The lightning strikes
so suddenly
that it isn’t any wonder
the land laughs back
with the sound
of distant thunder

with rarely a scratch
or even a scar
from the nighttime’s
mischief
