Happy National Poetry Day!

Octochaetus multiporus, a bioluminescent earthworm.

It’s National Poetry Day, and after my glowing garden find earlier in the week, I couldn’t resist a little poem inspired by sparkly worms.


Like fireflies winking on summer nights,
Like fungi on rotting logs,
Like glowworms dangling from cave walls,
Like drifts of sparkling plankton washed up on the shore.

Bio      life
Luminescent      shining

A shining life.
