summer evening

firefly

longing for the grass
at the bottom of the pool
those fireflies.

longing for the grass
blades wave under prairie wind
rustle in ditches

at bottom of pool
crawdads and minnows asleep
moon passes over

elusive fireflies
hide in long grasses near pond
flicker on and off

    You’ve created an idyllic scene, here Lynn! I particularly like the contrast between the rustling grass and the silence of the flickering fireflies.
