Vein of lightning

Vein of lightning,

A sudden sight,
An image lost and found,
You charge the storm with a reeling presence 
You induce an ambling agony.

Struck with anonymous passion
The storm becomes a seeker,
Drifting, delving, near and far.
You flash, content to watch it rove
With silent laughter.

The sky deepens, the river wedges
Waves in a vehement quest
With nameless desires,
Dreams, unrealized.

The arbors press against the sky
Embracing despair,
Tears of suffering 
Hovering in the horizon.
