134. Theme 129 ~Glass~

This old glass jar is the perfect place to keep these fireflies……until they’re let go that is.

If you catch a firefly

and keep it in a jar,

You may find that

you have lost

A tiny star.

If you let it go then,

back into the night,

You may see it

once again

Star bright.

  6. Perfectly nostalgic image and poem. I wish they lived here, I have fond memories of them in the midwest.
