Lucky Triana’s Firefly

falling star
on my dinner plate
the firefly

One of the finest examples of simplicity and comparison that I have found in recent months.

The poet posted a picture, but, I’m not including it. These words say everything and leave us to imagine the infinite cycle of life–especially the decay and swift end.

She has taken the stars and put them on a plate for us, using a “firefly!”
It is as though we are partaking of the greater majesty of existence
at our own dinner table.

Thanks Lucky Triana for capturing a little light and giving us something of the infinite, yet fleeting.
