55/365 fireflies

As a child, I would catch fireflies
and watch them glow, on an off.

A bug not to be afraid of.

Their glow was like yellow lantern light
spreading out in a circle.

They hovered around, twinkling above
our heads,
and before out eyes.
Like stars that had fallen
from heaven.

    I love this post! I used to catch them and let them go in my room, and then open the door to let them outside again. I had a door into my room from our back porch when I was young. :)


Thank you for reading my blog, and spending some time with me... I am truly honored.
