Fiery Tails

11 August 2014 12 Comments Home » Insects etc.

Trailing the last moments of daylight
in the twilight streets, fiery tails
excite the air.

Firefly season is ending soon here, only a few more chances
for images in my firefly book.

Firefly season is ending soon, trailing the last moments of daylight.

    They will be back, perennial as the grass. But it’s good to enjoy them now, too, these last summer evenings.

    Summer ebbs away, a breeze, a hint of fall play with us for just a bit longer. Beautiful beacons, humid summer nights follow you. Exit stage left, but not just yet! ALWAYS Admire your fireflies, Rick!
