Remember the firefly
that began to zip and zoom
just below the treeline that day?
You had the strange idea to follow it.
And then I could feel the heat of your body
as our insect guide led us through the woods.
Soon we were at an enchanted cottage with a garden.
A sparkling chandelier hung from a tree branch and below
was a table set with bowls of porridge and a bottle of Chardonnay.
We toasted each other with our wine glasses and began to feast until
at last neither of us could mask the feeling of lethargy
and we curled up together in that magical world,
falling finally and blissfully into a sweet and gentle sleep.
