Poetry Friday: Rooftop Fireworks

Enjoy the poem that tied for third prize this year in my annual poetry contest for teens between cultures.

Untitled by Bea, Moldova/USA, Age 19

Imagine the coincidental unison
From a distance.
We sat on the rooftop
Watching fireworks explode
From all ends of the city
It's the most alluring thing to watch
From a rooftop.
As one firework sprang up
And died,
Another one
Miles away,
Would do the same.
