Grease Lightning By Michelle Pond

This bolt from the blue
gushed up from the sea
instead of dropping down from the sky.
It didn’t strike a single object,
but oozed indiscriminately,
destroying wetlands, wildlife
and workplaces of the water.
Worst of all,
it wasn’t over in a flash.

    Chellie, I am impressed. The beauty of haiku is the paradox of multiple feelings and images and the short, sweet expression. Loved the Gulf testimony.. Eileen
