Jeremiah Adams 1994 – 2018

In places near the mountains
blue ghost fireflies float low
to the ground bearing a steady light

Will I see them before I leave this world
or soon after this life becomes a memory

I would search through the forest for them
years and years falling from my limbs as I ran
Laughing with a voice grown young I would
carry them softly in my outstretched palms
