To Hold A Fire Fly

The little girl danced across the yard,feeling the cool night grass between her little toes.The darkness all around her ,only the blink of the summer fire fly she was chasing to guide her way.The small hand reaching out to capture it in her small grasp,holding her breath as her hand closed around it. What joy she felt as she realized she held the tiny fire fly in her bare hands.The girl held her hands close to her eyes for a closer look,as the captured creature blinked in her grasp,the joy in her smile faded and she looked thoughtful and sad.The little girl knew in her heart what she must do.At once she held open her tiny hands,giving the fire fly its freedom once again to blink in the night. Before it flew from her grasp it lingered on her finger for a moment as if to say a silent thank you to her for being so understanding that she could not own a fire fly and she must share its beautiful blinking magic with the night.
