Brillant, Twirling, Falling


It began.

Subtle at first.



Then exploding.


Colors entrapped me.



I took time to lie down...
to look up.


Look closely,
you can see them twirling
and spinning downward.




They've fallen.



Yet still manage to
stand at attention.
Saluting the sun.
One last time.

Morning has come.
