Flash 55-Sparklers

Sparklers crackling
Children race barefoot
Into the approaching night
Until the man in the moon winks
Fireworks blast off
Showers of color light the sky
They stand silent
The thud echoing in their ears
Joy and fear in their eyes
The glory of what is possible
Innocence and belief
Our future
Reflected in their faces

If you can tell a story in 55 words--go see the man, the g-man! Happy 4th of July to all!
