Celebrating light and life

Sitting on millions of grains of sand

I watch the sun hide behind the silhouette of the mountains

Staining the sky orange


The crimson sky slips into a cold purple

As the darkness leaks into the night


Two hours before the middle of the night

Splits the days

A bang rumbles through the beach waves

And gives birth to explosion of lights

Expanding in the black canvas


Coming to life in the air

And dying at the same time


Fading in space

But not in time


Their ghosts

Etched in light particles

Travel infinitely


It is the Celebration of Lights



In its absence

We cease to be brave

Cling onto the shimmering stars

And wait for the light to bring life


To me, celebration of lights

Celebrates life



Life bursts out of a thin line

Grows and glows

Spreads bright and proud

Yet only reaches a speck of the sky



It vanishes

So sudden

But gracefully



Another life shines

Over the smokes of a dead fire


Life comes and goes

But the light remains

Do you like fireworks?

  1. Lovely words πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—,( we went for South Africa and South Korea ) so yes firework fans for sure πŸ’—

  2. Loved your writing, love fireworks but as I get older I am scared of them (the fireworks) for my kids. On the other hand, my kids also like your writing.

    1. Thank you, I wouldn’t try firing fireworks myself, but when it’s the fruit of other people’s efforts, it’s pretty to watch!
