The Firefly Way: A #Poem


(photo from

Sitting outside
Watching the fire flies
Light up the night
Skimming grass tops
Lining fence posts
Mere moments
The entire
Neighborhood fate

Whose plight needs their sight?
What puzzle requires their ever so slight brief bright?
As they move and commune
A path
A way


For they are equipped by God
To celebrate His Son
A gift we can join in
Learning from John the Baptist
The message to point high
Cloisters of firefly light


The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!” When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus (John 1:35-37).


Summer is here! Last night I watched the fireflies in awe. All photos today are Pixabay unless otherwise noted. Have you spent time with fireflies? I would love to hear.

  1. Nature has its own mystic beauty that can mesmerise any mortal’s heart and through your words the way you captured that mystic beauty of nature through the medium of fireflies is truly magnificent 👏. Thank you so much for sharing such a heart-warming post! According to your convenience please do read some of my writings would love to know what you think about them ☺️


  2. Thank you for this sweet confirmation of what the Lord was speaking to me last night! As I watched our town’s fireworks from my second story window, the fireflies seemed to echo the lights and flew upwards so beautifully! It all stirred such a longing in my heart for Heaven, even as my own physical pain was so hard. And then to wake up to read your words here. Wow. God is so good. Blessings to you Dear Sister!
