Catching Fireflies


A captive

of your expression.

Never wanted to be,

but here I am.



in your gaze

for a minute,

stretches longer,

a sentence of eternity.


I was just a lonely beam of light,

now, I’m shining,

captured by your eyes.

Describing the whole universe;

immaculate disguise.


I’m wearing you.

for a moment,

before you realize,

then I am gone.

A photon’s life.


Journey through your mind

and out the other side.

Just a butterfly mote

in the net of your iris,

reflecting everything.


You see me,

and we see

infinite possibilities,

terminating in clarity.



HG – 2021
