FIREFLY by Laurie Smollett Kutscera
(50 words)

Emelia caught a firefly,
And for a moment
It felt like she held the moon.

“You are perfect,” she whispered.
Its amber light cradled between her fingers.

And then, she let it go.

It hovered close, as if to say, “You are perfect too!”
Then flew into the summer night.

This is so heartwarming. So like a child. Stay in touch with that inner child and let her continue to inspire you!
Delightfully sweet!
