Fourth of July ( Senryu)

Sky rockets at night
Fourth of July waves goodbye
All good things must end

    A great Senryu .. I am quite impressed to see all these forms being wrote by you. Each one I read is completely different.. its nice to see you expanding your horizons and exploring forms of poetry. A poem about the 4th of July.. in such few words youve said it all. I love the usage of the word waves.. I believe that would be almost a personification.

    Well done.
    5/5.

    Beautiful piece, you really summed up everything in such few words! The imagery that passed my mind was incredible, as the Fourth of July is a joyous time. 5/5 from me, take care...

    To me the 4th of July means the summer is almost over, we are at the halfway point of the year. I am not much on the sounds of fireworks but the beauty of the displays they use is wonderful. Good Job. 5/5

    Ingrid,

    although this is not a celebration in the U.K I can feel the mixed emotion and charged atmoshere in this piece. All this imagery and all in just 17 syllables, how do you do it?
