Lightning's lover

My wife has given me to read Dragon Champion, a novel by E.E. Knight, and now, a few chapters in, I have come across a stray phrase that struck with its evocative beauty:

Lightning will light up a place she wants her lover Thunder to visit.

A mother dragon is telling her hatchling of the beauties of the world above their winter cave. Now, having heard the dragon's words, I don't think that I will ever look at lightning quite the same way again.
