Out of the blue at age 73
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?
