skies; her nights are lit by fireflies.
At night — with fireflies,
under the African skies —
all worries dissolve.
Under the African skies
on a night lit by fireflies,
I see stars everywhere.
Go on over and visit, if you haven’t yet. See what others are doing. Try it yourself. The beauty of this prompt is meeting new songs, none of it takes that much time, and it’s fun.
