Fireflies at Night

Fairylights strung
on the night
on invisible wires,
Softly flaming winking fires.


Stars fallen from the sky,
yellow and ripe;
Entangled in black leaves
on black boughs.


A glittering crown
adorning the night's frown.

10 lines made up of 34 words arranged in a way that makes the heart rejoice at the wonder of it all.

Well written. Has a rhythm and comparing the fire flies to stars would have sounded far fetched if it wasn't for the following three beautiful lines.

The last two lines might be a result of your obsession with night (which is quite understandable) But for me fireflies are always a beacon of defiance.

"A glittering statement
against the will of darkness"
