Far between

fireflies-in-hand1

Firefly moments
Glow momentarily
Far between

With mind’s eye
I cup them gently
Saving their warmth

For times when life
Is callously cold, spirit
Droops weighted down

Yes, no one promised
Me a rose garden
Yet my romantic heart

Longs for one
If not a lifetime
Allow me a chunk

Nay even a sliver
Like the sliced moon
Shining an opal river

In the night sky when stars arrive
(Un)fetched as they unabashedly
Do during daytime

From far between
Let shiny moments slide
Closer stringing a firefly beeline~
