Fait Accompoli

Lightning rips open
the sky with the accompaniment
of thunder -

The show begins..

A homeless young girl
raises her face towards the sky
a strange glow lights her eyes...
the rain lashes her body
she shivers in ecstasy-

Wind and thunder..
She knows this is her cue:
and waits for the moment.

A jagged bit of blue lightning
shoots down at her;
she receives it with open arms


from somewhere deep within
her soul tears free
off her naivety,
and soars to the heavens.

There is a stillness.
Through the rain rinsed aura
is seen
A rainbow and a lone star.

Usha, 18 April, '83
