And on my

Own quiet reflection

In the backyard

Of my life

I hear winds

Of my past

Blowing through willows

All my expectations

Moving but never

Staying for long

But there in

The dark thickets

Appear flashing bouncing

Lights that dance

Quietly far off

Slowly I approach

They encircle me

Making me glow

Into the thicket

I eventually go

And disappear there

Becoming a firefly

Light of love
