A moment of silence, the promise of sound,
And then! In but a breath the sky erupts
In colour and smoke and cries of delight,
Like children playing at pirates in Neverland.
The gold of the sunrise against night;
The red of the roses from the Queen’s court.
Emerald, silver, blue, purple, white,
A cloak of peacock feathers and Venetian mask.
For the briefest of seconds, nought but a trickle
Of time in an infinity of water drops,
You stand between the Rosette and Orion
A slip of a star, basking in the multitude.
Gushingly inspired by this collection of gorgeous awesome-ness.
