fireflies and meteor showers
flash across the same night sky,
this little light proclaims their powers,
if only for a few blinks of an eye..

you were there, but I was dreaming,
I awoke to find you gone,
this movie plays behind my eyelids,
where you’re a star, and we know every song..
+++lightning bugs and space rocks
+++trace their lines onto our retinas,
+++scrawl such soft graffiti,
+++there is wonder in this world of ours..

orchestras of insects calling,
blend their smallest sounds to start
a symphony of summer buzzing,
that fills up every corner of the dark,
+++fireflies dodge mason jars,
+++while shooting stars burn one last flight,
+++you can tell the 2 apart,
+++so make a wish, and don’t ask why..

fireflies and meteor showers
flash across the same night sky…
