As the day becomes night, the crickets sing, the bullfrogs croak like the beat of a drum, and families sink into the sighing meadow. Blankets are spread, hushing the grass, and a clatter of wood brings the crackle of fire. 

The whispers rise to shouts as the first rocket rips the night sky with a shriek. The pearls of color burst like a hundred balloons and tinkle slowly down upon the lake. 

Firey flames of fantasy fill the air. Children rush through the grass leaving a crinkly trail, and a ribbon of lively joy, hands stretched to the sky reaching for the spurts of light. 

Hands behind head, let go and watch the fantastic display. Eyes drifting closed, heart thumping slow, breeze of a sigh. Let the night take you into its embrace, as the canons of color fade into dreams.
