A moment lit by fireworks

For Rick & Katie

Glowing embers drift through air
fading out,
as in our ears echoes sound
a tinnitus ring,
a negative noise,
a remembrance of explosion

In the dark, faces barely seen glow
with warmth and love
laughter resounds as stray rocket roams
dangerously close
but none are hurt
all are whole

In the dark, the light burns brighter
rocket light in the sky
and the light in the eyes of those
who come together in love and joy
in front of lodge
in peace
