Firefly

Posted on

Power cut every night for thirty minutes is back with splendid summer rain. Am I the only person who celebrate power cut? No electricity for thirty minutes means you can’t do anything you usually do, during those moments. Like every other day, I went to the terrace to lay down and watch stars.

I could hardly see stars since the night was pretty cloudy. I was in my own world wondering about stars, me. Then an amazing thing happened. A firefly came by and sat right on my nose. I tried to stay still but, after a few seconds it just decided to take off. But, those few seconds were enough for me to change the track of thoughts.

A eeeny meeny firefly made my day. I was having a pretty rough day and all of a sudden surprising myself, I smiled. Why the hell was I even watching stars which I couldn’t reach, when there were beautiful fireflies all around me?  Fireflies are just amazing. I badly wanted to catch one a take it to my room, decided against it. Wonder if fireflies get confused between stars and their friends!
