reaching the end of a poem
or the grand finale of a fireworks show
in the final lines
the silence at the core
the last firework blossoms
the last sparks fall
there is wonder in the silence.
My thanks to Jessica M. Her poem “Om” on her blog, Ascending the Hills, inspired this, my last poem for NaPoWriMo. Congratulations to all the poets who have participated in NaPoWriMo this month! Keep writing poems. Don’t stop just because April is over.
