Yesterday night when I switched off my bed room light I saw a fire fly blinking near the kids’ bed.
I thought about the times we had spent trying to catch them . The monsoon nights . The wet feel. the cry of the frog. the screeching crickets .The pond near to the house glittering like Christmas lights in the night . The calm darkness .
The mother in me was concerned . Would it go into my kids’ ears ? Do they bite ? I will have to check google tomorrow.
After much weighing I decided to hush it out .All this time the fire fly was there . Blinking happily. Content . Not flying.
In the dark I tried to catch it . But couldn’t . It was there blinking. I switched on the light ….
It took me some time to realise it was my mobile in some screen save mode that Siva had changed recently.
And no fire flies !
