Early one morning this summer, being outdoors in the yet still, quiet, darkness, I spied a lightning bug flitting around near the grass blade tops and it brought back memories.

In the darkness of the night
He's searching here and searching there,
Off in the distance, under the tree;
Atop a fern, or near the ground,
He hopes to see a flare.
He's waiting and hoping;
Expecting a response perhaps in the bush.
Soon, he espies it,
A bright yellow beam.....
The glow from his lady friend's tush!

My photo
Retired, living in the coastal area of the Gulf of Mexico. -enjoying the sand and surf. I have these titles: daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother of two grandsons.

I enjoy music, movies, beach combing, pencil sketching, crocheting, and dabble in watercolor painting. My obsession: learning photography skills; birding along the Coastal Birding Trails in our area.
