bursts of sparkling hues
colored filaments spreading
across night’s inky

sky celebrating
my freedom your freedom my
land your land our home

I wrote this on the 4th of July. I dedicate this to everyone serving in the military and to everyone of their families. Thank you for serving our country and defending our home.

Thank you. How do you think it can flow better? Any suggestions? I'd be glad to hear them. Always. I welcome them.
