Thunderstorms
Deliver brightness
But we’re just
Gigajoules
Devoid of promised lightning
Energy, destroyed

This Shadorma was written for Tanka Tuesday Theme Prompt: Write a syllabic poem using the theme “the nature of lightning.” Sorry I’m late, but still wanted to participate πŸ˜‰

Edited to include Moonwashed Weekly Prompt: Thunderstorm because the prompt just fits perfectly πŸ™‚
