Fireflies at night

 
 
Six Firefly Haiku
 
 
                        firefly
forgotten
as a new one appears
 
 
Ah lightning
      when you were a firefly
            & I was a boy!
 
 
wishing
to see all of you,
firefly
 
 
closed carnival
only fireflies
still flashing
 
 
leaving the fireworks
I enter the silence
of fireflies
 
 
    firefly
never quite
        going out
