    between stars
    and lightning bugs,
    a quiet conversation

    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--

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