John Dyer Exhibition I Official Limited Edition Print I Art & Storytelling Competition

‘A Firework’s Flight’ by Callum Mitchell, Age 10 Years

All I can see is darkness. I think I’m in a box. Suddenly the box shakes and I can hear people around me shouting, then a sharp object comes through the roof of the box and slits through the tape running down the flaps of the box to keep it shut. Four fingers come the top of the box and lifts open the flaps and holds me in his big warm hands.

Suddenly somebody shoves me in the the ground and walks away.

A couple of hours past and now its dark some people with bright green jackets behind me and lights my tail “ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss” my tail is about to send me up up, up into the shiny sky.

“3,2,1” the men shout. Suddenly I shoot up into the night sky like a rocket past the sails of the boats. Instantly I straighten out and go up. I can see all the people cheering and clapping, watching me! I can smell the grey smoke following me. I can taste whizzing next to me. I can hear the waves lapping on the sea.

Suddenly I explode into a million pieces across the night sky. Red, blue and green…All the fractures run down into the crowd.
