Awestruck


         On my way to the chicken coop I noticed the sky light up some distance away.   I stopped and just watched.  At first, I thought that it was heat lightning.  There was not sound, but an eerie stillness. I considered that it might be someone lighting off fireworks as the view was partially obstructed by the tree line.  As I stood and watched in silence, I recognized the beauty, and then I saw bolts of lightning within the flash of light.  After a time, I sat on the porch and observed in wonder, awestruck with the beauty and power that nature provides.  If it had not been for the chickens and their need for tending, I could have missed this magnificent showing.  I was in the right place at the right time and that is always a good thing.
