Firefly Night

Lighting a lantern for the long lost ones,
Glowing in the gentle darkness,
now they are here, latecomers to the gathering,
no longer lost but wending their way to me.

Awestruck by their luminescing souls
forcing night’s recession, I spiral my way to them
to touch lightly their power.
I, too, light up the night.
