The Ballad of Lightning Rod / La Balada de Pararrayos

The Ballad of Lightning Rod / La Balada de Pararrayos


Heads down
Watching phones
Nodding off
When will the bus arrive?
Unknown
Silence thrives
Until a lonesome cough

A stirring
Catches the collective gaze
Of all potential riders
Off in the evening haze.

Approaching ever closer
A frenzy of movement
Quite often flawed
Comes the dancing machine
Our Lightning Rod

Ears plugged with tunes
Only he perceives
Showing off awesome moves
Only seen to be believed.

Arms spread wide and spinning
Knees bent down
And up again
Grinning
Eyes closed
Rhythmically posed
Feet twirling across the ground
Prancing like a funky chicken.

Toes now tapping
Hearts now pleasant
The bus stop crowd
Sits awed
In the presence
Of a disco god
In the presence of Lightning Rod





Bajen la cabeza
Ver los teléfonos
Cabeceando
¿Cuándo llegará el autobús?
Desconocido
Silencio prospera
Hasta una tos solitaria

Una agitación
Atrapa a la mirada colectiva
De todos los potenciales corredores
En la bruma de la noche.

Se acerca cada vez más cerca
Un frenesí de movimiento
Muy a menudo errónea
Llega la máquina de baile
Nuestro Pararrayos

Oídos tapados con melodías
Sólo percibe
Luciendo impresionantes movimientos
Sólo visto para ser creído.

Brazos abiertos amplios y spinning
Rodillas dobladas hacia abajo
Y otra vez
Sonriendo
Ojos cerrados
Rítmico que plantea
Pies dando vueltas por el suelo
Saltando como un pollo funky.

Ahora tocando los dedos del pie
Corazones ahora agradable
El parada de autobús público
Se sienta asombrados
En la presencia
De un Dios discoteca
En presencia de Pararrayos

This is an earlier creation of mine, a song in tribute to a person I created from thin air.  Which, of course, is where lightning comes from :)  Thank you all so much for the nice word on Anchored, my previous poem.  You are always so encouraging for me and I really appreciate it!!  Next time, I think, we will return to a bit of Revelations, but, for now, I hope you had a fun time meeting Rod and I hope he puts so music in your hearts and a dance in your feet :)  It has been forever since I shared a tights picture, so here you go!  I hope your weekend is fantastic.  Sending you many hugs and every happy thought :)

Se trata de una creación anterior mío, una canción en homenaje a una persona creó de la nada.  Que, por supuesto, es donde rayos viene de :)  Gracias todos por la buena palabra anclada, mi poema anterior.  Siempre estás tan alentador para mi y realmente lo apreciamos!  La próxima vez, creo que vamos a volver a un poco de revelaciones, pero, por ahora, espero que tuvieras un divertido encuentro barra de tiempo y espero que él pone música así en vuestros corazones y un baile en tus pies :)  Ha sido siempre desde que compartí una foto de medias, así que aquí tienes!  Espero que tu fin de semana es fantástico.  Te envío muchos abrazos y cada pensamiento feliz :)

If you invented this for a person that doesn't exist, how beautiful would it be to write it to a real one ? Or does no (real ) one inspires you to write beautiful things ?
