Firefly in flight
Catches moonbeams on its tail
Sky lights up in kind
This post is in honor of the first firefly of the summer! Last year my backyard lit up like fireworks, there were so many. Last night I wasn’t sure I saw him, the lone ‘lightening bug’ flying around, indiscriminately shining his light. So I sat and kept my eyes open as long as I could, and BINGO…I saw him!
I thought about why I love these insects so. And I realized the answer: These wonderful bugs carry their light with them and proudly display it no matter what. We could all take a lesson from these flying torches of light!!
P.S. I send a prayer for those braving the drought and wildfires out west <3
