Donna Allard

DANCES WITH FIREFLIES

tonight the moon

moves as if flipped…

like a dime tossed between

index finger and thumb.

a silver pin balancing earth and universe,

dancing on the evening’s fluid sky.

to view this Bay of fireflies my heartbeat echoes.

you and i are, starring. breathless.

here i am!

Donna Allard was named Beat Poet Laureate for Canada 2019-20 by the National Beat Poetry Festival. She resides down a long dirt road and lives in a 1909 homestead where muses fill her world with flowing visual poetry.
