Fireflies at night

Six Firefly Haiku
as a new one appears
Ah lightning
      when you were a firefly
            & I was a boy!
to see all of you,
closed carnival
only fireflies
still flashing
leaving the fireworks
I enter the silence
of fireflies
never quite
        going out
Haiku by Carl Patrick, Vincent Tripi, Donna Fleischer, John J. Dunphy, William Cullen Jr., Carl Patrick. From Lanterns: A Firefly Anthology, edited by Stanford M. Forrester: Bottle Rockets Press, Windsor, Connecticut, 2007.
