He Now Seeks Fireflies

he loved counting stars
but tonight the clouds hid them
he now seeks fireflies


This Haiku is shared with Carpe Diem - Clouds.

  8. I think as long as he doesn't count raindrops he should be happy.

  9. I remember seeing thousands of fire flies in the grass on the last summer day of 2014 ... I scooped some up in my hand ... it was holding heaven in my hands ... made me appreciate my darkness in my soul because otherwise one can not appreciate light, right? ... Love, cat.
