Daily Prompts- Fireflies in a jar

I do feel down, just like the rest of us

I feel trapped sometimes I must confess

But there are always little things in my day

That teach me that life isn’t always impeccable

The ups and downs of our day are an example

How life can have unexpected turns and detours

To understand the current situation we need

A different perspective, a changed outlook

Like the fireflies trapped in a glass jar

Have a craving for freedom just as we have now

We crave open air and liberty to meet others

But do understand that this voluntary boycott

Is the one thing saving lives right now

Don’t try to live on the edge of a knife

Come inside it is safer for all involved

In response to the following prompts;




Flea, Jar, Star

  1. I can remember catching lightening bugs almost 3 decades ago, in MO.. In FL now can’t tell you the last time I have seen one. For some reason this is a good childhood memory. Love the way the jar looks all lit up.

  2. You are so right, Sadje. Today was a hard day for me but what you said about craving freedom made it easier. Essentially we are postponing our current freedom to actually have it for the rest of our lives. Thank you!
