Power & Light
(Sun Series #9)

Totally Unexpected

after the storm
the drought
the gentle rains
the wait was over

coming down the flowing Mimbres
just before Faywood
blue lightning finally struck
struck right on a hot June afternoon
with few clouds in a hazy sky

ten cows dozed
among white poppies
maybe the dust felt right
on brown elk bellies

when she saw them off to the left
we stopped
aroused the herd rose
and met our eyes
ears and nostrils at full attention
would they run?
no — blue lightning finally struck
