I have been quite late in participating in this contest but nonetheless, I wanted to give it a try for the sheer joy of being able to create some poetic landscapes. I hope you like my attempt and in some way, enjoy the journey. I welcome you all on this fun ride!!
I have chosen Fire/light as my inspiration and I hope I do justice to the theme through my poems.
The fifth poem is captioned as Firefly O’ Firefly!
Firefly O’ firefly
Why are you always so shy
Glowing in the dark night sky
Flapping those wings that are so tiny
Resembling little bubbles that are shiny
Is it some magic wand that you carry
Or is it a little lantern that you transport in a hurry?
Firefly O’ Firefly,
A unique blend of mystery that you are
Do you hold keys to a Pandora’s box that is rare
What is that you search for constantly
Making circles in the inky space vigorously
What is the secret that lights up your path
You successfully seem to dismiss the darkness’s wrath!
Firefly O ‘ Firefly,
Come near me and lets play a game ,
I tell you my mine and you tell me your name,
Every time I get bewitched by your unique beauty
Admiring your existence that is so very pretty
Fear engulfs some, while some get envious
But then only a narrow prejudiced mind makes all the bias!
