Fireworks: A Poem

Updated on October 15, 2014

Fireworks blaze through the sky
In blossoms of red and green
Hanging for a small eternity
Then dissipating into summer heat
You touch my hand and my heart bursts
Lighting me up with your brilliance

The lake shines with deep blue brilliance
Reflecting perfection in the cloudless sky
I am cracking up as you stand and burst
the boat, and tip us into the algae so green
We swim back, laughing through the summer heat
I could laugh with you for an eternity

We’ve waited in line for an eternity
Sunlight glints off the lap bar in brilliance
The metal striking my hands with summer heat
Slowly the coaster ratchets up towards the sky
I can’t see grass any more, just green
And we are flying, a joyful screaming burst

Your hands fly at me in a sudden burst
You will be tickling me for an eternity
We flop on the grass, emerald green
Eating our picnic on its brilliance
You pull me close, lift me up into the sky
My cheeks blazing with summer heat

Seeking to escape the summer heat
I tiptoe into the water, but in you burst
Shooting raindrops back to the sky
The ocean stretches out to eternity
Water sparkling in deep blue brilliance
Fading outwards to soft sea green

You guide the ball effortlessly on the green
Hands wrapping around my club, comforting heat
Passing on some of your mini-golf brilliance
The ball rolls straight in a sudden burst
It hovers over the hole for a small eternity
Then falls as we raise our hands to the sky

We are a burst of joy, a swift jet of green
I will bask in your heat for all eternity
My warm flash of brilliance guiding me through the night sky
