Flowers, Flags and Fireworks

 

 

The full moon

is in attendance

to a regalia.

One star

shines queenly

among the luminous

but not bright,

opposite the natural

satellite of Earth.

Beholding the Galaxy,

are upturned, patriotic faces.

A carillon of ‘Peepers’

pervade the warm night air

and fireflies shimmer

in the midst of

flowers, flags and fireworks.

Thank you for your comments Ray. To answer your question – bells not doorbells. In our area – bells of ‘peepers’ (noisy crickets or the like) fill the July/August nights. Just a little poetic stretch of the imagination. Good writing!

As always, you are able to take a moment or scene and describe it so eloquently. 🙂 However, I did not understand this description:

One star

shines queenly

among the luminous

but not bright,

opposite the natural

satellite of Earth.

What is that one star that is not shining so bright? The moon which you just talked about? Is it a fireworks flag?

Write On!

Good morning, Patricia

The flow was smooth, and your imagery was spot on. Your use of an ethereal backdrop was excellent, especially in tying it into July 4th.

Curious…the use of carillon…doorbells or bells?

Take care and stay safe,

Ray
