Fireflies

Poem by Nivrithi Kuttuva ’21

I wonder if you see

In the brink of night 

The twinkling drops of gold 

Speckling the shadows beneath the trees.

Creating an illusion of a constellation

Having a race with the stars to see

Who can commence the night first,

A rare summer night’s dream.

We wonder how

They came to be 

Invisible 

except for the light they radiate.

As quickly as they appear 

They disappear,

Alive in the wind and whisper of the silent eve.

Showing that among Nothing

There is always Something.
