Are All the Fireflies Gone?

  • If you called your grandmother Maw-Maw
  • If your Maw-Maw lived almost a century but refused to grow up
  • If your grandmother is the fun one in your family
  • If you’re older than 50
  • If you stuffed grass clippings into a glass jar and chased fireflies
  • If you played cowboys and indians
  • If you dripped watermelon between your toes on a hot summer day
  • If you’re a grandparent and your grandchildren only talk with you virtually

You might enjoy my self-indulgent, exaggerated memories in a short story
