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
