Lovely imagery of sight and sound.
(I guess I'm nitpicking, but I think that, meteorologically, the thunder comes before the lightning. I happened to encounter that fact on TV a few days ago, so it's still on my mind!! It's still a lovely haiku.)
Really a great poem, Angie! It's quite visual, very perceptive, and original. Thanks.
For the record, lightning and thunder happen at the same time but lightning is seen before thunder is heard … always! The interval between the two is mainly a function of distance of the storm from the observer. Google "thunder before lightning?"
thank you everyone for your kind comments — glad you like it!
@southwest side soul — I remember my grandma counting between the lightning and thunder when I was a kid, trying to guess how many miles away the storm was. that was before doppler radar on tv, of course!
You got me thinking, as I thought the same. Depends possibly where the witness is? I watched lightning come down two or three times about ten feet away in a neighbour's garden. I'm a sucker for this weather.
