FIREFLY

Dipping,
          dancing,
                    flying high,
                              beautiful soaring firefly.
                                        I watch it flicker
                                                  as it passes by.

Why do you like to write poetry?

Abigail Rose Cargo: “I enjoy writing poetry because it comes naturally. I get an image in my head, add description, and I love feeling the words come together.”
