firefly in a jar
the little girl
starts to cry
(This appeared, in a slightly different form, in the Shiki Kukai July 2008.)
I'll be taking another short break (What a gadabout!). See you in a week or so.

I like this. I've never seen fireflies but when I read about them in jars it always sounds rather sad. I think there is hope for the world with little girls like this in it!
