Fleeting as a Firework

You were as bright and brilliant

and fleeting as a firework.

Exploding into the dark night sky,

a fiery burst of color

illuminating my life and my art.

Then fading  quickly into darkness

like a million tiny pinpricks

moving away from the earth like stars

at the speed of light.
