Flashing, lightning, calling,
Air and feet
Laugh till we’re weak,
Panting, pulsating, feeling,
Rage and pass
Climbing, devouring, turning,
Jump and stamp
Smiling, shining, something,
Nothing like that
Had been once
Veering and wheeling

🙂 what a dazzling event
I enjoyed the images you convyed as well as the light tone of your poem, Alan! All the more so as I imagine I’d feel very awkard at a roller disco.
a real electric tide…….love those fun filled moments…so much energy in the lines….feeling charged…. 🙂
ha. i like the energy in this alan…there was a roller drby where we were this weekend….now that gets a little crazy…fresh take…i like….
Brings back fond memories.
Literally cracking with electricity! Lightning indeed!
I like your thought on a different kind of lightning
A terrific prompt, Alan, and I like the direction you chose to fulfill it; not succumbing to the obvious, as I did, lightning bug that I am. Reading this I kept being blinded by the spinning disco ball.
Fun prompt Alan and I like the way you’ve applied it here. I wonder if they still use those disco balls — I well remember dancing with them flashing in my younger days.
So much fun. Reminds me when my kids dragged me rollerskating once. OMG.
I remember in my high school years I used to go to such a roller rink. What fun that was! I like the way you have used lightning here in such a creative and unique way.
high energy- love it!
sounds like a fun time!
