Day 310: Take Five – Fireflies

The heat and humidity came, but it still wasn’t really summer (not yet)…Another school year ended, but it still wasn’t really summer (not yet)…The lilies bloomed along the highway, but it still wasn’t really summer (not yet)…The pool opened in the park downtown, but it still wasn’t really summer (not yet)…Then the fireflies came (and danced like stars in the night), and it was really summer (at last).

I always look forward to the first fireflies of the summer, and the simple, impermanent beauty of their rhythmic green glow.

If you’re lucky enough to live somewhere that you can see the fireflies, take a few minutes this weekend, step outside, let go of everything else inside your head, and let yourself get lost in the magic of their gentle glow.
