Hannukah candles burning bright
Blinking strands of christmas lights;
The Eastern star guides wise men to the sacred child;
Northern lights dance in the wild;
Rudolf’s nose leads Santa’s Sleigh
Fireflies illuminate our imagination’s way.
When darkness closes in
And there are no friends in sight
Flash your smile like the lightening bug
and dispell the gloom of night.
Blink your unique rhythm
or gleam in synchronistic union
Let your own brilliance shine
like a tiny sun
Fly through the exuberant forests
And the cloudy marshes of your soul
Apprentice yourself to Firefly
and help all those lost in the shadows
joyfully find their way home.
