Lightening Strike

This oak tree was struck by a bolt of lightning and the scar rips right down to the roots.

The line seems absurd, too precise and yet it came from the electrical discharge of the sky to the earth in devastating perfection.

The tree did not burn, but it is dead, shocked from its slow life into improbable death in a blinding instant.
