Lightning Bug

Upon a glance
I did but see a
a flicker of hope

I happened on 
a party of sorts
a celestial kind of dance

What enthralled me so
was bug of light and awe
an organic spark

it played around
abound for nowhere
not a friend or foe

then out the sky
all I saw was a 
ball of light

begging me to play
asking me to stay
and all I wanted was to fly
