Finally got to see fireworks

ROAR! Concussion–chest

and ears–a primal echo–

thousand tongues of flame,

magnesium-bright stars fall

to oohs and ahhs and silence.

  1. this was my life for many July 4. I am hoping to revive my show next year

    • Every year I tell myself I’ll be somewhere awesome for New Year’s and catch brilliant fireworks then. I’ll pull it off one of these days. To date my favorite display was Bastille Day in Paris. Sheesh, that’s tomorrow, I almost forgot about it!
