Charmed Work

Calling down the fireflies
female in the grass

in my hands
homespun glass

charmed work
of wet, nested fingers.

Fireflies light up the night in the Trinidad rainforest and even the bedroom in homes where the walls don't reach all the way to the roof to ensure air flow. It's quite magical in their unexpected loveliness. I too think of them as female. Charming, MZ.
