Here is a little poem I wrote titled ‘Blue Lightning’ for a poetry activity today, within my writing diploma. I redid the first line so that it fitted in more, as the original first line was a requirement from another activity.
I observe my feet under the reflective blue watery surface
With memories of conflict echoing inward
I feel consuming thoughts being ripped away
I wish so exuberantly to venture out and beyond
Can I be that stream which will take me from here?
Departing, I left behind all that mattered
Like a rock falling from a precipice never to return
I became the flow that also granted me such mindfulness
With a renewal of energy I felt stronger than ever
The potential of lightning fuelled from within my soul
