Lightning Facts Learned First Hand

 

 

Lightning Facts

Lightning is pretty in the sky at night

It flitters and flashes from the heavens on high

A power from God only an atheist could deny

The beauty is awesome, the power, a fright

Like the fingers of God stretched across our domain

The thunder adjoins like the clapping of God’s hands

When the lightning strikes close

It will scare the hell out of a mortal man

Do not seek shelter from the flashing beauty

Underneath of a tree with limbs spread wide

If you feel the hairs of your back stand high

Fall on your face and pray that you will not be fried

Please take it from me, your brother and friend

If one of God’s fingers touches you the pain is for life

If you are blessed to survive the fright, barbecued inside

You’ll never again stand in the open, enjoying the site

Thunder, The Memories, The Light

 

4:30 In the morning listening to the rain outside

Quiet massaging thunder rumbling to distill the night

Do we consider the thunder as the fury of God, or His love

O’ listen to the somber drum roll fading off into the night

Thunder the voice of an Angel singing, or a warning of light

The flash of light it changes your life from that time

A near miss, a near that didn’t, you tend to remember the time

Is it a wondrous thing that you got lit up and yet survived

In the rumbles deep and low you wonder why you’re alive

Did the Lord steer the light so we could see our own darkness inside

To The Scepter Above do we humbly and meekly bow even now

Is it guilt, shame, or pride, do we hear the Devil laughing at us now

Our final tally sheet, did we end up doing more good than harm

Something as simple as choking on one’s own spit we can die

None knows if once again we will hear the thunder roar then light

Thunder the last thing we hear tonight, or is it forever goodbye?

Thunder The Memories And Light

 

4:30 In the morning listening to the rain outside

Is it guilt, shame or pride, do we hear the Devil laughing at us now

Our final tally sheet, did we end up doing more good than harm

Something as simple as choking on one’s own spit we die

None knows if once again we will hear the thunder role then light

Thunder the last thing we hear tonight, or is it forever goodbye?

Darkness The Thunder And The Light

Deep in the night as we quietly slumber in our bed

Lying peacefully in the darkness, minds filled with dreams never remembered

To a loud clap of thunder our subconscious now awake

In the darkness of our slumber we hear the thunder then see the lightning flash

Whether in sleep, or eyes wide open, does the sound of the thunder frighten

Rumblings deep and dark we hear in all the corners of our minds

The sounds can slap our souls like the clapping of God’s hands

A loud crack, then the awesome lights from the Heavens flash in

Does the lightning bring peace to your soul, or melt your heart within

Do we try to live our lives quietly in the dark, ignoring the signs of the times

Are we at peace within ourselves, with the Maker of the thunder and the light

Thunder can draw one’s attention, lightning a mighty sting, this I know first hand

August 83 evening storm moving in, bivouac in the Army, living in ignorant bliss

A finger of God reached out and touched me, my body will never let me forget

Each day we open our eyes, we think it’s up to us, foolish, it’s up to the Keeper of time

So, we can all decide to live our lives in the slumber of Spiritual darkness and denial

When this life that we now live is over, we all have a Soul, and forever it lives

Where it resides is determined by the life we now live, are we strong, or just a leaf in the wind

Spiritual darkness, thunder and lightning, global warming’s big, storms simply a warning to us all.
