Mouths gasp in wonder-
mystical lights dance in tune,
breathless concourses in awe
As God's creatures glow.
Brighter than cool, darkened nights-
Seas of fireflies ignite

    Your final line here; "Seas of fireflies ignite", makes me wish I was a tiny firefly. Kudos! Over the top! ~ECMc

    :) Thanks! Like the doctor fish? Those things are really cool. Actually it's rather funny, I live in a place where there aren't any fireflies... For some reason I didn't actually believe that they really glowed until I saw them for the first time this past Friday during a senior trip to New York! :)

    enjoyed reading today....fireflies are an interesting creature. Have you seen the deep ocean explorations and all the creatures down there have some glowing capabilities due to the darkness.
