I choose this particular haiku because after living in urban suburbia for most of my adult life, I had forgotten the magic of fireflies at sunset.

I am a transplant from Boston and the abundance of nature that now surrounds me makes my soul happy. The gorgeous sunsets often make me pull my car over just to stop and enjoy the view.

The minute I read this haiku I knew it was the one I needed to try and bring to life visually. It made me think of my new backyard and the wonder I felt when I noticed all the little fireflies flickering among the grass while a beautiful sunset painted the sky above the tree line.

Lingering summer
Light fades—fireflies check in
For the evening shift
