Sparks

Tiny stars descend out of the heavens into my yard. They get into the garden and they blink among the branches of my river birch. They light up my daughters' eyes and put wings on their feet. The wonder of them washes away the fear of bugs and little hands beg to hold them. The world is full of magic again. Living sparks light on me.

I saw my first lightning bugs when we went to MO and TN on vacation and I was about 12 years old. How magical!
