Dancing Light

Before the moon can

even rise, the sky fills with

flirting fireflies –

flying sparks of dancing light

soften the slow creep of night.

  2. Exquisite poem, Joan.

    It reminded me of a song that always makes me smile – “The Lightning Bug Song.” (Here’s a link to the song by the Chenille Sisters: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DH5WyVb4Ahc.)

      I can’t thank you enough for introducing me to this wonderful trio. I am totally addicted. I especially enjoyed “Blowing In the Wind” and look forward to listening to more of their songs for kids and for adults. 🙂
