Fireflies

You ran circles
around the yard
in the too tall grass
chasing fireflies

while we kept the
baby entertained
with funny faces

and as she giggled
and you flew onto
our blanket shoving
your clasped hands
under my nose

I thought to myself
“I will write a poem
about this moment”

and then you
opened your palm
