The firefly floats through the sky etched with black,
dropping blobs of momentary light across,
does it blink brighter than the stars?

The dewdrops form and hang tight onto the flower,
shining picturesque, what a sight!
does it shine brighter than the diamond?




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
