Haiku Friday: Fireworks!

It can't be the 4th without some fireworks... so let's haiku about that this week. Here, I will go first:

Wisconsin fireworks:
Really? The "Neighbor Hater?"
I don't, but got it!

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 formula, and have some fun!

Big booms, colored lights
in the night sky. Cascading
neons flutter down.

Totally OFF topic but I feel a need to not let this week pass without noting Pat Summitt. Apologies to anyone who is annoyed by this intrusion. -- JS

A she-ro to me.
Made playing “like a girl” mean
like just playing.

A champion among
champions. The game was
the thing, not winning.

But win she did. Teams
of bright faces, ponytails
bobbing on the court.

A teacher, she taught
us that fierce competition
can be female.

A she-ro to all.
Forever a winner She's
the Summitt always.

No problem-- Summitt changed the world. I'm glad you remembered her here!
These are very safe,
Emergency room next stop,
Better count fingers.
