The effect of the fireflies lasted long. Their images were etched in her memory. The shimmer of their glow was unforgettable - the buzz of their wings in the silence of the night. Nostalgia clung to her. A tear swept through her cheeks as she thought of their nightly freedom.
Their impact on her was immense.
She was once a firefly in the golden days of the yore but had switched her body to a human for a man she loved.
Only when she hit reality did she know that the man was nothing but a picture taken long ago.
Response to a prompt at 3WW for the day 20.10.2010. The words are effect, immense, shimmer.
Sorry for not having posted all these days. I was on my trip to the north east part of India and I'll put the pics and experience in the next post.
