The day after fireworks

Yesterday, I asked for haiku about fireworks as my family sat and waiting for a show in our town. The poems shared were so good, I would like to highlight them!

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

quiet morning
after fireworks
seagulls at ease
in the sky

Thank you, Ellen!

And here are two more by Alan Summers:

starburst fireworks
a girl and her mum tiptoe
to pick them

sky shift
a Chinese lantern
hits the moon
