Illuminating Souvenirs

Tiny gems sparkle in black mountain skies,
a backdrop for flickering fireflies.
Campfires blaze in a dazzling display.
Burning “Off!” candles keep mosquitoes at bay.

My eyes still reflect all the shimmering light
from our tiny campsite on one bright summer night.

Today is Day 4 of Creative Bloomings “Granada Camp for Wayward Poets” July 2014 Poem-A-Day Challenge! Before running off to attend to last minute vacation preparations, I wrote this for the latest prompt to write a poem based on inspiration from night lights over the lake. As soon as the cat and house sitter arrives on Sunday, we’re outta here! Have a great week!!
