That Light, That Chaos, That Beauty

Stopped on the side of the road.

Camera in hand.

Wind whipping in my hair.

Lightning bugs no longer adorn the fields of this late summer night.

I’m giddy with delight at the sight of lightning.

Not sure what it is about it, but it makes me smile.

Makes me calm.

Makes my Spidey Senses tingle.

Makes me, me.

I lean against my pretty blue car.

Feel the bass of a song by Super Tramp beating through the steel.

I hold the camera up and giggle.

I keep snapping away.

Hoping for the light, the tingle, the electricity.

Then, it happens.

I capture it.

I laugh out loud as the shutter clicks.

I check the camera roll and see.

That light. That chaos. That beauty.

I think, that’s me.

That light. That chaos. That beauty.

It is me.
