Bursts Of Light

Like shooting stars they pierce the dark and paint the sky with bursts of light. As oohs and aahs follow each spark like shooting stars they pierce the dark. Rockets explode over the park raining color onto the night. Like shooting stars they pierce the dark and paint the sky with bursts of light. Written May 23rd.

The Firework Display


I have a memory-
of going with father   to see fireworks
we brought folding chairs      and warm blankets
     it is a magical recollection
the neighbours gathered   with anticipation
it
  began
      with whistles and flickers  flashes and snaps
a continual assault   of pretty colors falling
    clusters of lights moving     
                            and dissipating
strobes    flashes   bangs    cascading    waterfalls
glittering
       trailing
           projectiles        and sometimes quiet glitter
father held my hand
   stars hanging in the night sky and drifting slowly
down      and then spheres of stars glowing
oh
    it is truly
               a wonderful memory-

Lone survivor

Lone survivor
July 3, 2015
~+~
I sit alone in my basement all hunkered down
My faithful dog with me
Because tonight is the night of firecrackers 
And firework, yep it’s the 4th of July.
*
My dog gets to wear a rap around cover
I get just my basement,
You see I am a lone survivor just like my dad
He from world war 2 me Vietnam. 
*
My platoon was on patrol when we saw some
Kids playing baseball it was on the 4th of July
So we asked kids if they wanted to play us
Sure thing, as we were playing an enemy.
*
Patrol had seen us and hit us as we were playing baseball, 
I got hit in the leg and fell down my buddy was hit 
In the head and killed he fell over me
I played dead as they check us over.
*
It took me three days to crawl back to base
All platoon was wiped out but me.
So on this 4th of July like others
I will hate and hunker down as the damn firecrackers
And fireworks go off…

Lessons learnt in life

She
Taught me
To love her
So completely
Inch by precious inch
Me   a   willing    student
Not  once    was  I  discouraged
She helped me practice night and day
With her there were no  l i m i t a t i o n s
I was given the    f r e e d o m   to express
In time she became a  w i l l i ng  student
She  could  no  longer  resist  my  touch
Her an~~~instrument~~~of pleasure
Sweet notes escaped as she moaned
Time      no  longer     mattered
R e s i s t a n c e     futile
Symphonic--------Joy 
Floating. ~~~~ up
F r o m  her
Thighs

For Silent One's contest
"You don't learn anything about life in school"
Sometime "HARD" lessons are the best.

Fourth Of July


Fourth of July, Independence Day for the United States, and
On the news political speeches praising the nations heritage, then
Reading of the declaration in deep proud voices and joyful singing.
The country will celebrate with parades and fireworks and ceremonies,
Hanging the flag outside their homes and having picnics with streamers.

On army bases there will be a salute of one gun shot for each state, and
From radios and TV the most popular song will be The Star Spangled Banner.

Jumping children with balloons red, white, blue floating, and
Under tents the barbecues will be cooking those big ball park dogs.
Love of the nation will be on every lip and in every single heart, then
Years of patriotic events will be re-enacted outside in a show of national pride.

WHAT LOVE LOOKS LIKE

"If anyone asks you
how the perfect satisfaction
of all our sexual wanting
will look, lift your face
and say,
Like this."

- Rumi

***

I lift my face to you, my anyone
     my only one, my love,
And see your question
     unspoken but screamed
     all over you
This is what love looks like
What it looks like with
     only that one person
I see you read you
     every line of you
     words without any
     meaning full of meaning
I read you I see your face
I taste the sun and the moon
     and all the stars in all the
     fireworks.

FIREWORKS

Fire is burning brightly,
flames cast gold shadows that 
flicker and scintillate.
Families gather as
fireworks explode in a

Fireworks

Color bursts upon a black night sky; dancing sparks escape. Reds, greens, gold and blue patterns aflame; crescendo above the birds. I watch, sky’s palette; alive with resonating bliss.

PENNY FOR THE GUY

It’s the fifth of November; Bonfire Night is finally here The guy is set alight, oh how the little children cheer Smoke billows, flames dance, tiny faces are aglow We eat hot chestnuts; munching them with great gusto Mummy gives me a sparkler it burns with a dazzling light Sparks fly like liquid silver, they are wondrous sight Such a kaleidoscope of colours light up the evening sky A rocket blooms like a chrysanthemum way up high Golden sparks stream as the catherine wheels spin Hear the cracker jack explode; their noise makes such a din Fireworks illuminate the sky, the crowd gasps with delight The display ends in a crescendo on this gala Guy Fawkes night Penny for the guy Contest Sponsored by Shadow Hamilton 11~01~16

Penny for the Guy

On a cold autumn eve, playful fingers tangled, soft and shy. The smell of hot chestnuts wafted through the milling crowd, a promise of comfort and warmth. We watched, you and I, the skies explode as rockets declared their secret desires. Catherine wheels danced a dizzying response while the bang of crackerjacks echoed, spilling smoke quick into the night. "Penny for the guy?", they cried. Sparklers lit, searching lips, the most tender touch. We kissed, my heart reflected in your eyes.

ALL THE LOVE THAT REFLECTS FROM YOUR EYES

The more we focus on what shines inside
That has us taking this amazing ride
Living life's highest high's
To the stars, so we can mystify
About our love, we won't let slip by

In a place, we can both occupy
Where we see the beauty eye to eye
Baby, it will never be about saying goodbye
You sure know how to make my spirit fly
The good lord would testify

How you taught my heart to reach for the sky
You have to know how hard I try
To give you my love supply
Energising what grows so deep inside
Knowing we have concord love far and wide
How wonderful it feels living without having to hide

Opening up a world that we can justify
Where our life is so electrified
Love that brings on life's most rewarding high
With a woman, who magnifies
All the love that reflects from your eyes

Fireworks

The cold night is awoken and warmed 
A family of excitement ready to release their arsenal
Stored under the stairs until the big night
Let the show begin:
Traffic lights – whoosh colour changing
Rockets – whoosh bang screeching
Jack in the box – whoosh bang-jumping
Sparklers – whoosh fizzle-sparkling
Catherine Wheel – whoosh dizzy-spinning
The big one at the end

Alkali Elements - Lithium, Sodium, Potassium



Part 1

Lithium, Sodium, Potassium
All from Periodic Table Group One
Their reactivity is maximum
And they affect the human condition

Rechargeable batteries use Lithium
As a component in their production
It tries to make mental health optimum
In treating the bipolar condition

Sodium is essential in nutrition
As sodium chloride salt in food for taste
Sodium compounds home products are common
Some are baking soda, soap and toothpaste

Healthy nutrition needs Potassium
A good source of it is the banana
It's used in fireworks which are awesome
And also used in plant fertilizer


Part 2

I can still remember quite vividly
Watching alkali elements' power
It was in a lab class in chemistry
Demonstrated by our class teacher

A piece of sodium placed on water
Began to hiss very furiously
It then sped up under its own power
And ran around as if it was crazy

Potassium was much more violent
It made an extremely loud crackling  sound
Then suddenly up into flames it went
And scared the wits out of the class around

Remember The 5th

Bonfire burning merrily shooting sparks
that hop and dance in bright moonlight.
On the top is the guy smoke covers feet
as the flames lick ever higher consuming.

Catherine wheels spinning colours madly 
while children's sparkles form misty shapes.
The sky lights up as rockets fly and burst
into spectacular colour with thunderous blast.

Hot baked potatoes warming up cold hands
and the glorious smell of sizzling sausages.
Guy well alight burning brightly, sparks flying
slowly now the fires die and the sky turns silent.

With happy sighs the children run home
to hot chocolate with melting marshmallows.
Their eyes gleaming and red noses shining
they clamber up to bed with excited whispers.

Tradition now, over and done for another year
tomorrow a big clean up will be needed.
For now, all rest locked in their memories
of this year and nostalgically of others past.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD

[A] World is us.
[The] World is the universe.

Attuned to captivity from the freedoms denied to others internationally,
     only defines true political activism.
Benevolence does not just form even in civilization.
We must annihilate those that deny peace.
This is where we find our true leaders.

For the love of God, let’s stand together as a method of wealth.
     Formulate the terrorist to close the flood gates.
     Our grief and bereavement states that we will die one day.
     Therefore, our journey should not be negated by killings premeditated.

The world as a systemic force defines the people who invest in hope.
The emotions shown from unnatural occurrences demarcates a new system of  
     government.
Forum for Discussion - we will define (M)ilitant (C)ommunism. 
It is our civic duty to bring forth new theory.

A world as us deals with our home front.
Unnatural occurrences do shape world war.
Once ignored, it overwhelms the balance of amity and peace.
     We are the people that find responsibility in ideology.
Militant communism is to be.

For the love of God, let’s endow humanity a greater passage to a new era where     
     peace is positioned in precarious time and not through terrorism   
     contradicting creation and life.

For the love of God, we should appose right from wrong where we do not  
     condone beheading at all, but stand together to eradicate all aberrant 
     mind-sets to preserve human existence.

For the love of God is an outcry that describes a terrorist attack.
For the love of God, Why?

Firecracker Plant-The Sound Of Color

Millions of magnificent miniature marvels,
shoulder to shoulder, sharing your showy shrub
as rich red rumblings rise from your racy petals.
Like sounds of cymbals you slice the still air,
shimmering in your lace of chiffon, shouting to the world!
Boom! Bang!
Colors bursting in brilliant blasts of 

silence...

Summer Celebration - Visual 6

Kaleidoscopic colors burst, illuminating velvet skies. Warm summer air ignites a thirst. Kaleidoscopic colors burst, while awestruck murmurs are disbursed, and cannon booms cause babies cries. Kaleidoscopic colors burst, illuminating velvet skies.

Team Work

Team Work 

alteration between success and failure
astuteness to win challenges 
ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives 
ability to work together toward a common hallucination 
drive that allows common people to attain infrequent results

distinct obligation to a group determination
different commitment to group efforts
to divides the task and double the success
adeptness to work together towards a collective vision
ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives

hush-hush that makes common people achieve special outcomes
create the innovations that defines our professions
moving forward together
group of many hands but of one mind
the fulcrum in long term achievement

accomplishments of an organization are the results of the combined effort 
gulfs the chore and doubles the success
the power of the team is each single participant
is to lift a shingle with more limbs
T.E.A.M. = Together Everyone Achieves More

Volcanic Fury

Deep within the bowels of the earth
a pressure builds up in intensity
As lava and gases increase in growth
bubbling and seething with angry fury

The pressure continues to build up
directly under the earth's crust
Which finally weakens and blows its top
yielding to the pressure's upward thrust

The action produces a huge crater
through which ferocious flames exit
Painting the sky in a red orange colour
in an awesome fiery exhibit

It's a grand display of fireworks power
generated by Mother Nature
Which reaches out both near and far 
in testimony of its grandeur

Clouds of ash and smoke rise up to the sky
spreading for miles and miles around
Obscuring vision both far and nigh
before most of the ash falls to the ground

A thick outpouring of red hot lava
scorches everything that lies in its path
Streaming down the sides of the crater
as it moves on with relentless wrath

Volcanic action has an awesome tale to tell
of what goes on under earth's placid shell
It's where red hot lava and gases dwell
which when released create a fiery hell

SPECTACULAR

Squiggly lines in the sky become fish that quickly swim away.
Peonies bloom with bursts big and bright, making a splendid display.
Eye-popping patterns of pyrotechnics thrill the young and old.
Colors that crackle make cherry flowers that beautifully unfold.
Trails of sparks can glitter the sky in gold or silvery ways.
Aerial treats are these while anthems play; the heavens are ablaze!
Chrysanthemums, palms, and waterfalls too are capturing our gaze.
Universal in appeal, how traditional fireworks are -
Lights that lift like rockets though they never go too far!
Amazing plethora of pops - the patriot’s delight.
Revelry accompanies the grandest show of the night!
