FIRE FLIES

"mock up" of fireflies by PSC -- not an actual photograph :-))


Fire Flies

Frustration flames,
conflagrant conflict
burns a hole in my belly

I step outside
into pitch blackness
seeking escape

Fireflies flicker
on ebony canvas
sparking flights of fancy

  1. This poem was prompted by Poetic Bloomings Prompt #60 – "Burning Passion", current events, and a recent encounter with fireflies. Happy summer solstice!
