Animals That Can Rip Apart Eternity

Monday evening I saw bright long bolts of lighting
maybe even meandering bolts of lightning
in the sky behind clouds above the garden shop.

Before the storm moved in the sky was almost clear
and the young Moon was bright above thin wispy clouds
and above parking lot lights at the donut shop.

Meandering sometimes horizontal lightning
looked like electricity trying to rip through
the sky itself to tear apart the sky itself.

The peaceful sky before with the three day old Moon
above the donut shop looked like eternity
crystalline forever above the man-made shapes.

Eternity was gone just a few hours later
as lightning bolts so-to-speak snaked across the sky
animal shapes lashing out in electric rage.

The storm passed but animals that can rip apart
eternity even if only for a time
are moving above garden shops and donut shops.

What shapes will replace the man-made parking lot lights
when rage cracks crystalline eternity itself
permanently and sunlight can’t shine on the Moon?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I took that photo Monday evening.
The Moon was about 14% illuminated.
The sky was
very beautiful with
very thin wisps of clouds and the color
gradations were
so smooth my camera
had a little trouble capturing
the colors and values without artifacts
even with no zooming, no cropping
to the image at all.
