doxology in our grove

 

dusky sunset chalks sky’s rose window

fireflies flicker their candles’ brief flame

cicada choirs hum nightly prayers,  and

robed birds chirrup their evening praise

 

 

dreams at dusk

 

fireflies spark magic

blinking lawn lights mesmerize

summer’s faerie dreams

twilight: diffuse & defused

 

light fades to darkness

flashes of peaceful fireflies

keep vampires at bay

 


Response to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai‘s “twilight” prompt (and films of same title).

don’t bug me

 

mid-summer evening

pulling weeds in my garden

mosquitoes singing

—–

grandma, what is it?

fireflies, my little bright one.

oh look — I catched it!

—–

refreshing shower

till earwig crawls out of drain

startles privacy
