The Fireflies

written by: David Dephy


I see the fireflies are rushing to meet the dawn,
I see the tears are rushing to meet the calmness,
the tears always are the words without letters,
and newborn baby always tells the truth without
any word right in mother’s heart, right in anyone’s
heart, like the rivers also are rushing to meet the sea,
the flood invades my spirit—
I see the tears are becoming the ambassadors of life,
I see the crystal clear ambassadors of future,
when the words are rushing to meet the silence—
the universe’s kiss on our thoughts.
