Out of the blue at age 73

Jean Stimmell©12/4/18
What does tangible mean at age 73
My eyes lock on a bolt, much older than me
at my cousin’s ancestral fishing camp:
I am spellbound

This bolt is more than a rusty headed
metal pin used to connect things :

It is a bolt from a cosmic crossbow:
A lightning bolt shocking me,
 into a waking dream 

In dreams, a lightning bolt can foretell
the crack of a sudden and terrible event,
or a divine message honoring the chosen...

Which will it be for me?
