Poem of the Day

Australia Day Fireworks


Explosions of colour burst out of blackness

In spattered circles of red and green

On the dark canvas of the heavens


Rockets streak skyward

Sending showers of silver stars

Above upturned faces


Children gaze open-mouthed

In awe and amazement

At the pyro technicians’ art.

Poetry Prompt #25

Monty says: The explosions of bungers, jumping jacks and the humble Tom Thumb on “cracker night” in my childhood came immediately to mind with the prompt. Today’s fireworks are even more spectacular.
