There Was a Time

By Tor Gar   

The lightning struck and its voice thundered,
The gang stood in silence as the drops splattered,
Their ever green siblings cried and screamed,
Their woody parents still stood still,
still,
still..
The self-reliant cloud swallowed and poured,
Their ever green siblings cried, still pleading,
The woody parents still stood, still,
still,
still..
The young greens ran, but some stayed connected,
The lightning disappeared, and its father stood dumb.
Their ever green siblings rejoiced and thanked,
But their woody parents still stood,
still,
still,
then silence.
