Jolt

I've been dabbling in writing since I was a teenager, but I never took myself seriously at all. This is my first attempt. Wish me luck! http://ruwhiteknuckled.blogspot.com/






A jolt of crimson
so out of place
a bolt of light
forcing out smoky clouds
opening the dust grey blinds
giving way to bright cold illumination
strong
new
definite
unlimited
no longer filtered to blue
the spectrum intact
infrared
ultraviolet
all in between
bursting
not creeping with timidity
pry open the warped wood of the frame
unabashed
welcome
invite
soak
bask
embrace
the breeze warm
sky alive again
feel the electrons
brain now charging with atmospheric electricity
absorbing
pulsing
changing
in a breath
the world open again
remembering how
like a coma victim
a cyborg
coming to
grey pasty hands
shading shocked eyes
but just for a moment
pupils adjust quickly
excitedly
not wanting to miss the light
