Firefly Carpet

Wind gushing through the tall trees at twilight
The air pats me on the back
  with soft touches of the day’s last heat
Fading rays of the sun’s reflective goodbye
 stream through, gloomy as moonbeams
Some glint in the corner of my eye
 a speck of gold, supernatural
I spy you hobbling around in preflight
 I delight in your throbbing fob
  as you grow into your wings
What a welcome first sighting
I suppose we must all crawl alone in the dusk
  before we dance in heady teams
And as I dwaddle home I see
      Firefly, Firefly, Firefly
out laying a phosphorescent carpet for me
