Captured

Running wild
Through a lucent flickering field of tall grass
Pulsing luminous war paint
Savagely smeared across our faces
Was I seven?
No story attached
A flash of memory-
The dark sky
Filled with flecks of light
Fireflies
Captured in a mason jar
They would all be dead by morning. ________________________________________
