Hooray for fireworks and celebrations!
I love the final question of your poem, Diane. Answering it is one of our jobs as poets!
Reminds me of a great fireworks poem by Diane Z. Shore that appeared in an issue of Highlights. Great fodor for poetry!
I love the bowl of spaghetti in the midst of all the fireworks!
I'm with Toby, the spaghetti and fireworks makes a great combination! Great poem!
"sing praises to us all" I look forward to tonight and will think about your poem amidst the show. You know...maybe we will have spaghetti. Thank you!
Thanks all! The spaghetti was a nod to the Chinese who brought us the delights of pasta AND fireworks! If everyone forgets carbs for one day, they can celebrate true freedom on the 4th! ;-)
Because I'm computer-challenged, I couldn't figure out how to get my work up on Poetry Friday; but reading your celebration of spaghetti has consoled me!
