Nocturnal cats prowling
Find delightful treats
Full of protein
Crickets leap
And paw
Slaps!

his magic wand.
Sounds swell. All musicians
in the cicada orchestra
play the tymbal.
Bats dance
to the firefly light show
against a backdrop
of cadmium blue.

Firefly
by Leanne Lovejoy-Burton
"FIREFLY"


 Resolution Blue Redwood Ribbons  
Campfire flames rise
Bluegrass ripples
Rattlesnake sighs
Holy Rapture 
the Union is close
Riding bareback 
Unbridled
passion waves high
with her sweet-lipped 
fast-talking
Grey Confederate Ghost
Tangled...

Beauty Lover
by Faye Gibson
Beauty lover, goodbye;
let the sad songs ring;
haunted, sunlit July
dips her blackened wing.

August scatters awry
flowers worshipping;
twilight’s single firefly
bathes in dewy cling.

Harvest apple supply
to fall branches cling;
sunshine...
