Brilliant

bursting colour out into the night sky

revellers watching the sight as the bells chime

it’s almost time for old father time to switch with his younger brother

launching a whole new year

light show of exploding sparkle

it’s like someone’s brightened up the darkness

and people are partying under it as the new year arrives

note the whooshing of the rockets and

the sound of the crowd as they travel towards the moon

Rocket

#Fowc #Rocket

A bit of a slow burner i think you would call it

The engines went into thrust, leaving clouds in its wake

On board little tiny robots – off to explore that far off planet

Cloud formations forming behind it

Rising up through the blue

for destination coloured orange

Taper

Taper

Take care, all, and stand well back

As the organiser lights the long fuse on the fireworks

Perhaps its inevitable to

Expect sparks, that’s why he lit the fuse so far away

Reactions from the crowds, amazed as the display rises up and cascades in the air

A poem by Inkdropk in response to the prompt
Scorched

 

The park grass in Greater Manchester looked a little different

November 6th 2016

The morning after the night before

when children watched with awe

at the colourful spectacle

appearing in front of enlightened eyes

The air laced with the smell of Gunpowder

Guido Fawkes’ ghost smiling away

Cinders of wood sit in  circles

where warming flames once stood

there’s now stillness, smoke and silence

in the early hours of a cold winters day

as dampened embers force out

The last traces of the bonfires life

a large black and silvery circle

set in a sea of green

With Guy Fawkes Night approaching – A Tale of Fireworks

Golden Fireworks over Manchester Town Hall

Flying towards the night sky
In celebration
Rapid maroons, rise in the air
Exploding in delightful colourful displays
Wiry tracers disperse in pretty pattern
Over the heads of wide eyed children
Rumbles of the rainbows exploding overhead
Keep the awaiting crowds in
Suspense, as the next rocket rises
