    This is fantastic I always enjoy a piece I can interpret myself. "My last flight," but the sparks can ignite you once again. I may be way off on this, but that's what I see.

  • Full moon here tonight. Watched it rise over the goal posts at our high school homecoming football game. We lost 34-36 on a last minute touchdown. But it was a fun game & there were a lot of sparks we witnessed tonight (along with some great sportsmanship).

  • Just like Poppy, I had to read this a few times! It was so deep! I loved it!

    Ooh, nice haiku Mackenzie. Surprising in the way it's cut, and the words delivered.

    I love it!! I had to read it multiple times to let it sink in. ‘Show me sparks against the stars’ is an absolutely gorgeous line.
