Fireflies

longing for the grass
at the bottom of the pool
those fireflies

Buson

longing for the grass
chlorophyll and oxygen
luminous bubbles

at the bottom of the pool
hidden secret world
shadows and light

those fireflies
hovering deliciously
surreptitious frog

My response to Carpe Diem #1771 Troiku Challenge: Firefly

While Carpe Diem celebrates its 7th birthday, we are honouring ‘small creatures’ of nature, and today we are working with fireflies. The goal is to create a troiku with a given haiku by Buson. A tricky prompt!
