Night lightning

Night lightning

The lightning had to tap three times
to crack the sky.
It whipped again
lighting the windows
like a popping light bulb.
Then the rain made a push,
bearing down on the house
tossing a bucket of water.
The torrent was thrilling.
Mother Nature giving us a show of muscle,
not threatening
but more braggadocios.
Then she’d laugh a throaty, rumbling laugh.
