Considering Superiority

twilight
trickles across field
and lawn
trees nod their heads
as branch tips touch
in harmony

fireflies
flicker code
unintelligible
but to each other
I think they giggle
as they gather

why wouldn’t they?
the breeze
is light and warm
and they are free
to do what fireflies do
to be

and we who walk upright
and work with tools
spin our dreams
in the dying light of day
that we
might live so peacefully

    Fireflies gracefully
    follow instincts avoiding
    small children with jars

    A lovely poem, Sarah. Here’s to all the fireflies and the memories they evoke.
