        FIREFLY

Night displaces the meadow,
gray blue on black. Sudden flare
of a bright yellow-green point made pale
by such quick flight
that it is now barely life
when it vanishes, darkens toward
a seeming near extinction.
From my shadow I  sense
the beauty —which is light— of that instant
brief, happy, mortal: lover's lightning flash.
