hmmmm...how interesting. Do you think that those bugs can mimic the flashes of the stars? Perhaps they are sending/retrieving messages to the stars, ya know? Are you and Graeme and his alien journal posts and these light bugs working together? Thats it...the gig is up you two...I have solved the lightning bug riddle...you and Graeme are using them to send messages to the aliens...hmmm...I am gonna develop a concotion to eliminate your little interstellar telecommunication devices...I am onto your guys' little scheme.
Hee-hee...read too much into those lines, eh? Or did I???...hmmmm...
Anyway, nice write yet again. As you can see, a reader can get so much out of it. Cool beans man. Have a good one and keep smilin'
When I lived in Georgia I used to love the lightning bugs! Of course, as haiku goddess, you did a marvelous job of portraying the bug, his light and his connection with nature! Love,Peace,Joy! epiphany ; - }
i love the stars twinkling in response, like the Morse Code you speak of. lightning bugs are fascinating, i used to love watching them when i was a child. don't see them much anymore these days. thanks for the memories! take care, @ Cat
The good old lighting bug mateing signal. This brought back memories for me as children we would run around outside at night chasing these little bugs put them in a jar and let them light up our bedrooms. Fond memories of easier times.
