They Will Have Circled The Earth

By the time
morning comes

the lightning bugs
will have irradiated
their last
full jar

They will have
circled the earth
en route
to the other side of the world

Where they will
liven up the eyes
of those
who need it more
than we do
over
here

  1. The beauty that darkness concealed is never seen with the dawn of light. May be because somewhere else it is required more than in light. Lightning bugs after all are the one who initiating the tender phenomenon of ‘lighting up life’. Thanks for sharing this wonder impression, it is beautiful, pleasant, calm and fantastic..:)
