Alex Berry - Blog 4: Fireflies

Post type: 
Blog post
Blog Public State: 


The universe is a child

with small and playful hands

pulling on the strings of fireflies

curious in their glow


Bouncing and reverberating - they spring in every direction

connected with the elasticity of a rubber band

stretched apart, and whipped together

they collide


A burst of light

Combustion, a million tiny stars

dancing in every direction

pulled apart and back again

with no control of their own


The universe is a child

sending spirals in the night

around the world and back again

they spin with electric light


Fireflies as puppets

lighting shaded corners

those ought to be left dark
