We are curled up on the couch,
the parents’ dogs,
I am moved by the beauty of a simple, summer night with the loves of my life.
Through the windows I can see the fireflies dancing in the thickness of the blue night.
I can’t hear fireworks from where I am sitting,
but it is just as well,
as the peacefulness of this little room,
for our little family,
is a little bit nicer
than a spectacle
I’ve always liked fireflies a little more than fireworks,
