Does anyone know some good haiku about fireworks?

If you can post a couple here, that would be great. We’re getting ready to see some right now!
Thank you!

    Just these two:

    starburst fireworks
    a girl and her mum tiptoe
    to pick them

    sky shift
    a Chinese lantern
    hits the moon

    空の変化 中国のランタン 月を打つ

    I think “bottlerockets” got its name from a firecracker display….

    starlight hits the earth
    in a million colored sparks
    the excitement bursts

  4. Hi Gene, I wrote this on July 5 and posted on my Psalms and Nature blog.

    quiet morning
    after fireworks
    seagulls at ease
    in the sky

    Thank you, Ellen

    I love Ellen’s haiku, but I have to tell you, one year the fireworks chased the robins right out of the maple tree and they haven’t been back since! So some birds find fireworks extremely stressful!
    But I logged on here to give you the fireworks poem that gave birth to “bottle rockets”…

    “after the bang/ bits of paper and smoke/ bottle rockets”

    I thought that was pretty neat.. giving haiku the value of the “big bang”… and the never ending paperwork involved with a journal!
