Today’s Prompt: Mark Helprin: “It was a mad and beautiful thing … “


That summer was one of







When I think of those

hot summer nights

and even hotter days

the only word that

comes to mind is



We met and started

out white-hot as a

bottle rocket

Continued to flame

and blaze through

day after day seeing

fireworks in everything

at every turn …

from wild and crazy

lightning storms risking

everything to get just

the right picture as

a single streak

connecting with

the ground

Celebrating the

4th of July at

the city parks

fireworks show

once again risking

it all to get just the

right exposure of

fireworks in the sky

All in all that summer

as Helprin so perfectly said:

“It was a mad and beautiful thing … “


Looking back to those memories

Remembering the fireworks not

only in the sky, but in our hearts

We could have had it all

But for one thing …
