Bolt of Lighting

Updated on September 3, 2010

In the harsh terrain of the Sahara desert

A mortally wounded Soldier laid helpless

Dying in the dead heat of the desert sun

Rossi, once a street smart guy

Now a wanted man as death looms

The only thing that sustains him

The quest to find his beloved



Florence the wonder of my life

A woman betrothed to another

A woman destined for no one but me

A woman who came into my life

Like the bolt of LIGHTING

Like the stars in the sky

The love of my life and my everything

A woman who changed my everything

The only strength now in my weak bones

      "The only strength in those bones!" Sometimes it must be love or imagination that stokes the fire.
