Quiet Electric
Quiet Electric

Depths of mist rise as newly heated steam
Awash in a hazy ripened full moon beam
Static electricity dances a quiet ballet
As darkness emerges from light of day

Heat filled moisture rains silently down
Glides over skin as satin evening gown
Shimmering luminance encircles flame
Raging disquiet flees to whence it came

Silent waters drawn to rushing wave
Instills inner calm of which I crave
Flashes strike intensely in distant sky
Gives dawn to knowing the reason why
Author's Notes:
An evening of electric storms

Gives dawn to knowing the reason why

If this is not a show-stopping ending, then I do not know what is. The twisted use of 'dawn' after the opening of darkness emerging from light of day is inspired. Your  use of language and your natural ability for poetic trickery have impressed me ever since we met, all thos centuries ago.

Lines 5, 6, and 12 all caught me well and off-guard.  I tried to pick a certain section, but it's so short, and the srengths are sprinkled throughout. (Kind of like an electric storm, eh?) You just generally have stunning word choice. I love watching the lightning, and I loved reading this.

I wish all electric storms were that awesome =P

Great write, another beautiful description of nature. And we know i like that!

Interesting and entertaining, Lady Jolen. A most effective turnabout in" darkness emerges from the light of day". YLM.

Very well written indeed; I love it.

49 Comments, what is left to say?? I witnessed many electrical storms when I was in the Far East and the magnificence of them has stayed with me. I really enjoyed this write as it took me back in time. Congrats too on a well deserved award, although belated.

Your use of adjectives is incredible. The description of the storm is beautiful. Everything about this poem is powerful.

"Cold hearted orb that rules the night. removes the colors from our sight. red is gray and yellow white. but we decide which is right. and which is an illusion..!"~Moody Blues~ I don't know why this just popped into my head as I read this...! I felt the quietness wrap around me like a blanket of lightning bolts..! You were right I did love this one..!

Oh, how did I miss that... You have created such imagery, so powerful and yes, electric! I must say, you are very talented!
Comment By: FreeAlison Storm Wolf on November 1, 2004 02:23:53 PM Report
If I was to highlight the lines in this poem which are exquisite...I would have to quote the whole poem!
Your description of the wonderous changes in the natural world which take place before an electric storm leave me speechless!

Heat filled moisture rains silently down
Glides over skin as satin evening gown
How terribly, wonderfully beautiful and so full of pregnant expectation of the contrast between the almost "otherwordly" calm before the heavens open and once again we are reminded just how helpless we are in the face of nature unleashed! Another for my favs without a doubt!
In mutual love and awe of "storm power!"
