The Fireflies


Fariha Hossain

A shadow climbs up the stairs,
Of the dark ancient castle.
The draw bridge has been closed for ages
It's nuts and bolts are rusty.
The wooden bridge is greyish with mold.
Two strong feet, two strong arms, a strong heart
Opens the door at the end of the stairs.
Her bright eyes looked up at the sky.
Van Gaugh must have looked at the same sky
When he painted "The Starry Night".
She opens herself up to the night.
Becoming thousands of tiny fireflies
She sets her soul free.
