I am a speck

In the float of fairy dust

Swept in spirals

Iridescent futility

Give me some gusto


The sun dazzles me dizzy

On cloudy days

My eyes tire of the roll


My firefly flicker is

          S-l-o-w-l-y   f-a—-ding

While you dangle, debonair

Among the diamonds

You and your crescent grin



Written for Lill’s poetic prompt, “Razzle Dazzle Me!”.  Not feeling very sparkly lately. Thought I’d blame it on the moon.
