art backlit dark dawn


Rockets crackle and bang,
shoot high in the sky,
their rainbow colours visible to all.

Wheels spin, sparks fly,
 fountains pour bright flames,
our private show.

Sparklers become pens;
 we write and draw patterns
in the dark sky.

plans and preparation;
in a flash, it's over.

The joy we share
the warm glow of something special
stays with us.

We recall snapshots,
raise a smile,
 cherish the memories.
