Firefly Dance

Last night Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I were treated to a beautiful firefly show.  We looked out our back door and the woods were alive with twinkling lights.  We immediately put our boots back on and took a walk through the woods.  Everywhere we looked hundreds of fireflies were flickering their lights up in the trees and out in the field. Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I tried to take a video of the light show but it wouldn't show up on our cameras. Once in a while a firefly would fly down to the ground and in the darkness, it looked just like a falling star.   It was mesmerizing.  It was better than the best Christmas lights show and better than the most beautiful wedding reception decoration.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I stood hand-in-hand in the darkness and admired nature's fireworks display. As we walked back to the house, Mr. Yesteryear Acres asked, "wasn't that magical?" With my hand held tightly in his, my answer was a heartfelt, "yes, yes it really was".  Thank you fireflies.
