...for the Greek weather guardians


We dance like lightning threading

through cotton clouds and a wet sky.

Singe you with a touch,

make every hair stand on end.

If we get too close

youโ€™ll burn.

All cells alit and move,

just like our two step we

approach with thunder,

loom on the horizon:

you better count

before you miss us.

Unless you ignite when weโ€™re near,

skin fire from one touchโ€”

a flash like nothing youโ€™ve ever seen.
