Mid-July & Fireflies

Juliet's Window II - Verona, Italy

When the days are hot and steamy

the air thick with the fragrance of honeysuckle and roses

like a warm peanut butter and jelly sandwich on white bread

the fireflies appear in the darkness of a mid-July night

lighting their way through the trees

until the need for their light is no more. ©Anita Adams
