Troiku Challenge 2019: Day 13: Fireflies


steamy night
fireflies
out in the rain

steamy night
near marsh or swamp or wet field
dank, cloying odor

fireflies
once upon a time I thought
they were fairy steeds

out in the rain
sometimes I can remember
belief in magic

Notes:
The "sleigh" of this Troiku was created by modern Haiku poet Jim Kacian. The Three Horses of the Apocalypse are to be blamed on me.
I don't believe in magic or much of anything else these days. But sometimes when it rains I can remember how it felt to believe.

  1. I often believe in magic. Except that mostly it is dark magic which brings itself to my attention. Those fairy steeds would breathe fire. Poisonous fire.
