Fireworks

Loose tethered maple leaves released by gentle wind.
Straw hats slink into alleyways under dipper bright skies.

Shades of red, gold and green scatter in a firework night.
In light and folds, a paper buddha exists in flux.

  3. I enjoyed this so much–and how fun, to toss in the paper Buddha at the end. Nicely done.
