A Beautiful Explosion

Here is today’s OctPoWriMo prompt: “Today I’m suggesting you think about the elements, how they affect you and about the duality and contrast in them.”

Since the post is called “Firepower,” I couldn’t help but think of the fireworks display that ended my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding day.

Fireworks red and white

Prepared with precision

Just the right mixture

Of chemicals

To create

The desired colours

The desired visual

The desired


Explosions injure

Explosions maim

Explosions KILL

But in the right hands

Someone with skill and training

Someone who enjoys bringing

Wonder and joy

To others

Explosions ROCK!
