lightening bug in a jar

Lightning Bug in a jar,
and I run to catch more of the same
on cooling grasses of a summer’s evening,
the Earth’s carpet beneath my feet.

Lightning Bug in a jar,
and I watch my own private light show
flying up and down, straight and squiggly,
growing brighter and brighter on the darkening day.

Lightning Bug in a jar,
and I check the air holes one more time…

then I lay my head back,
eyes fluttery with sleep…

holding on to the remnants of the day,
and envisioning all her promises…

should the morning keep them.
