Sizzling Summer Sunset

Summer Sunset on July 4th

July 4th

God’s Fireworks

Light up the horizon

And set nighttime heavens soundlessly

Ablaze!

Cinquain

(As our neighborhood and city was putting on a very noisey fireworks display, God entered with the most beautiful brilliant sunset that awed many)

The Day After…

The fireworks are over,
The celebrations cease.
Independence Day has passed,
Patriotism tends to decrease.
Yet, Old Glory still stands waving,
For she celebrates freedom everyday.
Her Stars and Stripes fly freely,
Unflurried, come what may.
May her presence daily remind us,
To value our liberty.
Let’s choose to celebrate everyday,
We live in this Home of the Free!
