A poem by Dan Bowman – don’t miss this!

Lightning
   once
     had a conversation
With air
   and cloud
   and all that nation
“I will provide you
   with such a show
But your applause
   need be heard
      down below!”
“How can we clap?”
    The air did say
“We have no hands
       on which to play
The sounds of an
     adoring throng.”
This bothered lightning
   but before long
“I think I have
    just
         the solution.
Though it will take
some resolution.”
“Let’s hear it,”
  said the wary sky.
Lightning was coy
  and she wondered
   why
“I will strike down
    through your core.
Then as you snap back
   as you were before
The sound will be like
     great applause!
Do not fear this greater cause.”
“We will just
     be moving on.
Feel free to flash
     AFTER
        we have gone!”
