RAZZLE-DAZZLE by Janie Reinart 50 Precious Words Contest



Thank you to Vivian for her 50 Precious Words contest. Here is an interview from last year on how she got the idea. Here is a link to join in the fun right now. 

Thank you for stopping by to see my 46 word story. Did you know: In some places at some times, fireflies synchronize their flashing?






RAZZLE-DAZZLE by Janie Reinart



Dragonfly drums.

Weaver riffs.



Firefly sighs, “CAN’T do that.”



Jitterbug jives.

Beetle boogies.



Firefly sighs, “CAN’T do that.”



Katydid croons.

Cicada serenades.



Firefly sighs, “CAN’T do that.”



Moonlight’s gone.

Spotlight’s dark.





Silence.






Firefly…

 BLINKS  !!

Friends…

 BLINK back!

RAZZLE-DAZZLE lights this wingding.

Firefly CAN…   SHINE!

ROCK ON!
