TRIUMPH OF SPIRIT IN LOVE, NATURE & ART

The Night Light Show

131

Tiny, twinkling stars

suffering loneliness,

fall from the sky

and become fireflies,

flickering on and off

among the trees

calling for a mate,

lighting the night sky

and exciting vision

with twinkling

and flashing lights

and one is not sure

which is which

so bewitched are we

by the show of Light.

      • I just looked at your title again, and was struck by “Night Light”, as in the comfort to children of any age…waking in the darkness.

    Super creative. Love the imagination it it! Or wait, maybe it’s true. πŸ™‚ perhaps stars fall from the sky and become fireflies.
    This is what I love so much about poetry: the magic.

    • Well, in the sense that we and everything is made of stardust, it is true. Thank you so much, Genie, for your valuable opinion!
