An Inextricable Night

A miracle occurred

the other day

all the lights went out

then the skies turned gray

Night came as we

gathered around the fireplace

not a star in the sky

nothing in outer space

Out of the darkness

the lightening bugs came

inextricable in number

began to play a game

A variety of shapes

with some pleasant sounds

show lit up the yard

as wildlife gathered around

Soon we joined in

dancing and singing

now all one in spirit

harmony is beginning

It ended

as quickly as it began

a powerful thunderstorm

overtook the land

Running for cover

bugs and creatures floated away

but in that one moment

we all had a field day
