FIREFLIES…….translation into a dream
Their presence was not felt until
The lights were switched off.
Across the newfound island of darkness
And hovered over me
Knitting patterns of luminous promises.
Their dance was ecstatic
And their rhythm, euphoric.
Lights on....they were gone.
Lights off....they were there.
I knew the game to lure them away
At last they got bored with
The rules of the game
Set by me, the sovereign seeker.
" Quit "
A flicker of a second...they were gone.
But I knew,
They had shone their way
Into my dreams, their ultimate hiding places.
For, all night I was traversing
Under a sky
A million stars.
