fireflies…

fireflies…

it is easy to be complacent in your place… meaning, I wrote this poem, and then I look at where I get reads from – like all over the planet! (which is pretty damn cool when you think about it, side note)… and… I should be more cognizant of my (potential) audience, not how I write, but how I inform, things I take for granted or just common are not so for some of you, and vice versa… which is damn cool… so, about the Firefly… it is something I have always known, taken for granted (in my bio-zone) but… bioluminescence… how amazing, man has never accomplished that (well naturally I mean, we do have glow sticks)… but think of the wonder of nature making it’s own light with chemicals… we need fire for light, well, OK we have electricity now but… not that long ago these little bugs had us by miles…


fireflies” 6.27.2018 (rewrote 7/8/18)

fireflies

adorn my sweaty lawn

humidity stalks

and lays thick

almost like a fog

 

fireflies

hover above the grass

sparkling like carbonation

in a glass

I look for a pattern

or to understand

the timing of their show

 

fireflies

the universe

up into the sky

I look for a pattern

in the stars

I can not surmise,

even here on earth

 

I can not even devise

the plan

the pattern, the why

the random dance

of the fireflies.


notes:  one of the rarer times I did a rewrite (I will always be honest with you people because… I have nothing to lose anymore)… and hey, I do things my own way, haven’t you figured that out by now ?  if you are new, well, read some back posts.


Music?  I am always listening to something!

Ty Tabor – Live in Your House

He recorded this all himself a while back, there is plenty of back story there for me personally but just… listen to the song, sort of southern rock with beatles influence… I love it (obviously).
