Fall of Night


the fall of night
bestows upon me well earned
moments of quiet

garden awash in moonlight
fireflies waltz through tall grass

  1. Waltzing fireflies sounds so magical. I remember when I first saw their dance, I was mesmerized at the light show. Beautiful poetry, Pat. 🙂


  2. Hi, Pat! I’ve missed you! I love this Tanka. I haven’t seen fireflies for years. I have a great visual in my mind from your words. ❤
