[untitled]

Lightning splintered
Into a thousand drops
On some August night
Falling gently to the
Earth as feathers.

A little boy lying
In a meadow reached
Out and caught one of
The drops of lightning.

One hundred years
Thence as family and
Friends wished for
His passing to be blessed
With ease he opened his
Hand at the edge of the
Bed he lay upon and
Let the drop fall to the ground.
