I stood out in the summer,
watched a storm blow in.
The clouds poured rushing forward,
The few seen stars grew dim.
The trees were filled with fireflies,
I watched one spiral down
like a star flung from the heavens,
or a snowflake, snowbank bound.
And as his kin all sparkled,
like I was Celebrity.
I took a step into the wind,
and wished you were with me.
