Huan Yi,
Undisturbed darkness
overwhelms a billion lights
the firefly has gone.

Posted a more long-winded version in open,
Thanks for the kick in the head.

My fireflies came in fine this June and July...but it does sadden me that a city that had so many as a blessing and internal beauty is losing them to "our own" inadequate displays of man's lighting.

Thanks, John.

Couldn't resist. Maybe we can sing them home again. I love fireflies.

"Glow little glow-worm, fly of fire
Glow like an in-can-des-cent wire
Glow for the female of the species
Turn on the AC and the DC
This night could use a little brightnin'
Light up you little ol' bug of lightnin'
When you gotta glow, you gotta glow.
Glow little glow-worm, glow"  and on on on the song goes.
