flitting firefly--
uncaught by the hand
uncaught again!

Delightful to see a trio of firefly haiku!

Bob Carlton's verse is fun using an elipsis in a concrete approach.

I love Charlie Mehrhoff's concluding "an echo of the sun," brilliant!

And David Lanoue's translation is masterful, uncaught, then uncaught again, catching the spirit of the fireflies. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!
