Forty eight million sparkles.
The twinkle of lights
A galaxy of electricity
Switch on, switch off.
Create a ball of fire.
Let it shine, bring warmth
Burning up, a temperature
And all of a sudden
Darkness.
The flicker of black
The end,
The death.
Such a fragile piece of glass
A peculiar
Creation
Of utter hope and despair.

Oh my gumbo! No flattery intended. I save flattery for the dry-cleaner so he will refrain from putting holes in my shirt. This is so inexplicable, so incredible and so excellent that I have to applaud. This is as close to the essence of poetry (as I perceive it) as I have ever seen. Absolutely amazing piece. I think it appeals to my very prejudiced mind because this kind of thinking and perception follows my personal bent as well, when I ponder life. But I have never been able to put it so succinctly into poetry such as you have done here. You are my personal hero forever.
