Lightning cracked a whip across the sky

– horizontally –
with no jolt of thunder nor
bolts of spears thrown down
to pierce the earth.

Rain fell in torrents,
and currents of air swirled
around the world
as far as we could see.

Such ecstasy
of wind and water!

Such power
to give us a glimpse
of our immense
All-Mighty and All-
Powerfully Good God.

Praise Him!
