If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep...
I'd just stand and stare
Take the song as you will, but tonight I saw a sight that could only be described by these words. My brother and I found our backyard a lit with hundreds of fireflies flitting all over. It was quite a sight to behold - an endless, fluorescent dance of sorts. Our backyard looked like a sparkling, shimmery canvas of dark blues and blacks, lit with tiny wisps of bright yellow. A tantalizing, gorgeous part of summer :)
I couldn't get a photo - my camera isn't strong enough for things of this sort, but I found a picture that sums it up perfectly --
