8 (who?)
The soft crunch of gravel under your feet
Stepping to the rhythm, stepping to the beat
Others surround you, excitement rides on the breeze
Summer putting souls to rest, their stress turned into peace

Driving, climbing, walking through
Nothing else better to do
In this old town, then what we found
On the night when our stars fall down.

Everything thing in this clearing become silent
Whispers of anticipation suddenly compliant
And we all hold our breath; our hearts in our chests, roughly kicking
as the final minutes on the clock fall away, softly ticking.

We look to the skies
and I can never believe my eyes
as I sat on the concrete that night
When the Stars seemed to Collide

Colors surge
In brilliant bursts
And these new lights we made,
These beautiful embers flicker at first
But more are launched, a crusade

Just a flicker, a flash
and when these lights touch the night
the atmosphere holds steadfast
And these stars begin to ignite

Bang, Crash, Boom
They create a chorus of sound
They play a thundering tune
And I am immediately spell bound

The summer heat coddles me close
And as I sit and revel, I think to make a toast
To those who sit under the sky tonight
I hope they enjoyed watching
The Stars that Seem to Collide.
Just a little thing about summer, and (if you don't already know) what do you think I'm talking about in this poem? One hint: It happens every summer, but it's not universal. ;) Its pretty easy.
Anyways I hope you all enjoy my poem and fill free to leave your guesses and feedback in the space below! Have an awesome day, night, or any time inbetween!
