Dancing Light

Hot summer eve
watching by the lawn, the field
dancing light in the grasses
the fireflies showing their finery
climbing higher to be seen

As I come near
rising into the humid air
dancing on the breezes
in the not yet still air

Catching one in my cupped hands
staring into the light
warm on my fingertips
feeling them alight

Pushing off of my open hands
joining the others in flight
dancing at the top of the grasses
a symphony of movement and light
