4th of July

i visited the black church again Sunday morning.
the depths of the way that place moves me i could never explain.

the choir was sans robes, so everyone was in their Sunday best.
the men were mostly donned in white button ups.
and i noticed most every lady was in a different bright color.
red, purple, sky blue, hot pink, yellow.
during one of their groovin' numbers,
with hands lifted-heads boppin and bodies swaying,

they reminded me of fireworks.

they were the most explosive and by far the prettiest i'd ever seen!

i spent the rest of the night alone, playing piano & eating the heart out of a red watermelon.

it was the best 4th i've ever had.
