The Firefly in the Darkness

Hi, I am Paramita Sen. I am an Indian writer. I love to write Poetry. Here is poetry for you.

the-firefly-in-the-night

It was the darkest night.

I was walking in the alley

The alley was Solitary.


Not exactly solitary,

there was one Besides me,

The firefly.


I ask him,

Why are you alone?

Where are your friends?

You don't have any relatives?

Where are they?

Are you alone in this world?


The Firefly told very proudly

No no, certainly not.

There are lots of members in my home.

There are lots of friends in my contact.

But

Today they're busy,

That's why they don't come with me.


Do you feel alone?

I asked him.

He said, No,

I am too busy to complete my work.

What is your work? Again, I asked him.

He said,

I am busy giving light

on your darkest night.

What is your work? Again, I asked him.

He said,

I am busy giving light

on your darkest night.
