Sun Burst – Shards Of DuBois

 
 

Sun Burst

 
 

SUN BURST

 

a ballet of flames

burning for liberty

leaping over twilight

trying to become a star

stretching back into the glow

etching the edges of early dusk

only dancing on the leaves of trees

warmth still spreading even as it fades

they ascend reaching out with frisky fingers

surging in mirth as they grasp farther into the void

a swan dive across the sky coming back empty handed

yet still they glow from the inside
