Haiku Carpe Diem #221, Hotaru (Firefly)

Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku prompt is Hotaru (Firefly)

What wonders fire flies have inspired in both adults and children over the centuries and today, whilst not a wonder, I got to use the word indefatigable in a Haiku…

catch a star

the fire flies live
at the end of my garden
were once were fairies


Fairey Fireflies
Indefatigable foe
lighting up the sky

Phew, try saying that last one quickly 😉

Smiles, love and laughter
