Fireflies In The Enchanted Forest


The forest awakens

from the folds 

of a drowsy day; 

to welcome the fireflies.

Fireflies that light up

the night scented leaves;

fireflies that light up

the entwined trees...

Their iridescent light

enfolding the forest 

in a green glow

a glow

that shimmers

all through the night,

making the forest 

 more enchanted!

        This is really beautiful Jayasree. I was on a all day bicycle ride one time,I got lost after loosing the sun, sence of direction lol😂 I thought I was hilucinating when I started to see the little lights in the farmers fields. When I realized they were fireflies,I knew I was really lost. I'd never seen them before. I live in Toronto😊

          That's lovely seeing fireflies and that too suddenly without realising it. A beautiful memory to treasure always. I love seeing fireflies.

          if the recounted portrayal words, read
          so mesmeric
          I can't help but imagine
          what experiencing, such
          a fleeting
          moment of Nature's magic
          must be like...
          (such a flawlessly executed write
          showcases your poetic skill/growth
          thanks for sharing, dear Poet
