Flash 55: Fourth of July

A giggle.

A laugh.

Anticipation.

Darkness surrounding

Stars twinkling.

Fidgeting, sighing, waiting.

When will it begin?

A murmur of excitement.

A whistling in the distance.

Stream of amber.

Blinking at sudden bursts of red, green, and blue.

Pop of sound.

Squeal of delight.

Breathless awe.

Fourth of July is here and

the fireworks have begun.
