An Idea


A tiny spark of electricity,

In the dark recesses of your mind,

Spreading, slowly,

Crackling blue


It lights up every corner,

Everything is electric blue.

Sparkling with brilliant light,

Fizzing, buzzing, crackling blue.


You share it,

The idea spreads to another mind.

You are both alight with it,

Spreading, slowly, crackling blue.


Soon the whole world is illuminated,

Everyone glows with your idea,

Sparks dance over skin,

Crackling blue.
