A blinking night Firefly

as the night dawn the darkest eve,
I lay down and watch the Firefly that
fly the whole night, with its blinking light
hover amidst the chilled winter prose

lucky I am, the night call the whispering
silent of tired body after a long day of
exhaustion of work; settle with knees cover
a little blanket, hold me to mute, watching
as it flies near to my bedside cloister

it's wings brings vents in my face, waking
me up to ponder, in my lightning speed of
the daytime sweat; slow as to remember,
yet to fast to forget, knowing that all seems
easy to file on my nocturnal memories

oh! come now my sleep, the firefly makes
my night complete and the wings shared me
to fly for another morning waits me for a
refreshing breathe

life blinks each day and allows its moment
to remember the chilled evening, for every
little blinks a continuous prayer allows us
to brings a moment of change of the past
events, and a sense of future’s achievement

blink dear firefly who loves to play the night
of the sky and gives each night a prize of an
eye to see the day.....

    An insect can also be a partner of a long journey through the soul of a poet. Well-illustrated passion towards a firefly. Dailiness, thirst for eternity, flies with the wings of a tinniest firefly. Beautiful catch the poet. Actually Shelly perhaps once wrote, poetic mind is like a piece of burning coal. Its need simply a catch. sometimes from outward, sometimes from within. But poet please beware from the conditional offerings of advertisements. You are a poet, and you will have to go long. Not all insects will help you to fly, some carries poison also by their thrush. Thank you very much. Consider me as a friend and forgive my extra talkings.

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
