A UNIVERSAL WONDER
October 10,2013 at 11: 24pm
Relaxed on a motionless summer's eve,
I breathe in the stillness of the night.
The twinkeling stars wink at me from the Universe.
I am at peace.
A tiny glimmer of light catches my vision,
On, off, on. off..
Quietly I lay watching as,
The light draws nearer,
Brighter now, but still flickering
On, off, on, off...
Nature sends me an allie,
No words need to be spoken,
Yet we graciously acknowledge each other.
I the perfect hostess share a few precious moments together with my most welcome guest.
As my allie journeys off into the distance,
My eyes flutter a kind adieu,
As the firefly slowly disappear,
Flickering, on off, on off.
