The "grand finale"

You told me about the “grand finale”:
dozens of fireworks launched all at once,
the light burning into the eyes'memory,
rapid explosions echoing throughout the body
creating short gasps of breath.

If you know the secret,you said,
you must look away, for a moment,
from the instantly blooming flowers of light,
at your lover´s eyes,
there you will see the blossoms,
in exquisitely delicate miniature.

The look upon the faces reveals
the innocence and wonder of childhood,
and shows a part of beauty
you have rarely seen
and should never forget
