waves of light
up and down the tree
fireflies

    up and down the tree
    through the eyes of a two year old ...
    a wondrous sight

    Thanks Martin.

    fireflies enter
    the garden ~ moonlight
    sways fragrant breeze ~

    lone firefly ~
    self immolation in
    a candle flame ~

    a firefly ascends
    the astral ciborium ~
    lullaby on the moon ~

    in the sunlight
    the fog particles
    going separate ways

    aurora australis
    flitters cross the sky ...
    her hair's red ribbon

    the sun sets near the tree
    fireflies

    autumn dawn
    doesn't the blooming red bougainvillea
    know the season



    imagine ...
    in the depths of darkness
    rescued by the lighthouse



    ripples in the evening breeze
    out on the limb
    five, no six, cooing doves
