in the early dawn -
lingering haze of burst bombs..
yet, our Flag stands tall.
|view from friend's balcony 2012|
A whiff of sulphur..
My nostrils twitch as I lean
Into the warm night
wanes into a dusky dark.
Boom! Colors explode..
|2010 fireworks experienced downtown|
The night turns sultry.
Sweat trickles down my sternum
As I sip sweat tea..
These haiku were not intended to be a set.
They were meant to stand on their own haiku feet .. :)
