"Those Fireflies"


Carpe Diem #147 Special "Those Fireflies" by Yosa Buson





fireflies blink
in the wet grass
as night draws

~~~

fresh cut grass
scents the evening breeze
fireflies twinkle

~~~

on a summer’s eve
lost in the tall grass
chasing fireflies

    1. Thanks -I was thinking how we ran around bare foot chasing them in our youth.
