I just sit upon a writing desk, and write. And then, I tell stories. Legends of long ago.
Wrapped forever? Never! Wonderful writing!
You nailed this one. 'surely never meant to be wrapped forever' sums it up so well.
first time reader. great poem. i LOVE the look of your blog. It feels "homey" and welcoming! :) Lisa
Well done Nino. I should not expect a fircracker to remain wrapped forever. They simply must be set ablaze!!
Let 'em blow! I like the upbeat feel your Magpie evokes. Well done.
Yes indeed. As kids we unwound the bunles so each could be lit separately, multiplying the pleasure.
Yes, I say light them!!
Certainly fired off a nice magpie!

cannot possibly be wrapped forever! Nice Magpie!
definitely shouldn't be wrapped forever, great!
Sometimes I feel wrapped up in the mundane. But must I go out in a blaze of glory, or can I show my light and stay a while?
no way, break open that pack and lets light a few...smiles. nice magpie
Definitely shouldn't remain wrapped forever! Wonderful work!
I used to love the firework wrappings when I was a kid, especially the ones dressed up like Chinese pagodas.
For sure. What good is an unspoken "BANG"?
Dear Patti, Terresa,Tumblewords, Brian, T, Lanie, Kathew and dear, dear bkmYes, as Patti so correctly said, - what good is an unspoken BANG?
I'm with Brian...lite them!
