    I just love the biggness, smallness, and then quietness of this as a conclusion.

    I like especially the presence of 2 people amidst
    a contrast of lights from the macrocosmos (stars)
    and lights from the microcosmos (from bugs).

    occasional firefly
    amidst words in the dark
    occasional kiss

    -

    flash of lightning springs forth--
    silence

    Anthony... I visually -listened- to the conversation... between the lightning bugs and the stars. Grand_!

    the last firefly
    hides amoung the rain drops
    a bat misses
