Reddish orange flame inside.
Slowly follow uphill winding
Joined with other sparks - a line.
Golden red, a hint of light now
Tracing serpentines at speed.
Single, doubled, tripled, many
Lines until a net they weave.
Flames of light cascading upwards,
Brilliant gold of blinding hue.
Wave on wave amass a solid
Sphere too dense, the weight implodes
