Haiku No.1 - Poem by Richard R. Navarro

in the distant hills
a solitary firefly
caresses the night

    Both versions are good, although your version brings to mind the firefly dancing in the dark- it's actions memerizing, rathr than the stillness of night embracing it- sounds sadder somehow.
    love you poems richard, got a few saved as my favourites. Basho once said write if you can write at least four good haiku's-you're a master.
    hear's to reading more.

    My friend suggested another version:
    in the distant hills
    a solitary firefly
    caressed by the night
    Equally perfect in imagery.
