I see spark-spiders
glowing in the night sky,
burning like temporary stars,
falling like flaming rain
to the dull earth below.
Perhaps the wind will pick the embers up,
and push them back into the sky
before they fade like ancient, extinguished gaslights.
I like the spider illustration for fireworks and it's glow that shines on objects below. I also like the smell of the gunpower or whatever that is especially on 4th of july when its real thick. this brings back some fond memories. favorite two lines "Burning like temporary stars Falling like flaming rain" nice visual read, mike
i'm digging deep down today! "spark spiders" is a great name for fireworks (i assume that's what you are referring to here). "falling like flaming rain" is a great image. i'll think of spark spiders now when i see fireworks in the future!
I've decided to look over the things you posted oh so long ago, and unlike all others i thought Fireflies when I saw this...odd of me. O.o Oh well though, its lovely, I think I'm going to be making my way slowly through your archive of talent, m'lady. Excellent stuff. ~Sicobe R. Crow
