Summer Nights

Unfogged's thread on the topic made me think about how the fireflies are out in Pork Smith these days -- starting at sunset, our yard is full of them. There weren't so many of these in New Orleans when I was a kid -- I'm not sure there were any, in fact; I think I only saw them in Indiana, when I went to visit my cousins -- but they're thick as pollen here, and very lovely in the dusk.

The nother night, my grandsons and I caught tons of them, put them in a jar, and sat them on a table on the porch and watched it light up. After a while, we opened the lid and away they flew. I love the fireflies; in fact, they are the only summer insect that I find nice.
