Flashes of light

For the last few weeks I've been getting random flashes of light in my bad eye. As if some invisible signalman where trying to reach me. Eye open, eye closed--doesn't matter. The poet in me is trying to make me believe it is tied to something metaphysical. But my skeptic won't allow it. Thinking about this illness from the point of view of ancient man, it appears some spirit or other is after me, throwing bolts of lightning at my brain.

Nothing I can do but use it in my words, words, words... Just a recording the occurrence in case it's important later.
