Independence Day Processional

Independence Day Processional

A Poem by Brenden Taylor
"

Some reflections on Independence Day.

"

Firework stands are lined up on the road

for an Independence Day processional

selling in circus tents spanned for miles.

The sun is high in the blue,

and the last sparkler has just gone by,

getting ready for the celebration.

 ----/----

Festival fans are lined up on the ground

for an Independence Day processional

sitting in lawn chairs spanned for miles.

The sun is tilted in the orange,

and the last anthem has just gone by

getting ready for the grand display.

 ----/----

Shrapnel shrouds are lined up in a row

for an Independence Day processional

shining in lighted candles spanned for miles.

The sun is evening with the horizon,

and the last hero’s hearse has just gone by

getting ready for the ethereal plane.

 ----/----

Afterburn clouds are lined up in the sky.

for an Independence Day processional

sailing in street lights spanned for miles.

The sun is out for the night,

and the last firework has just gone by

getting ready for next year’s cycle.
