Twinkling eyes surround
your children catching fireflies:
tumbling summer stars!

Aww! This is a great haiku! It has great imagery and I love the idea! I remember when my family used to catch fireflies! It's so much fun! Great job!

Reading this one, I have a clear vision of the stars("twinkling eyes")looking down and watching children chase after their tiny impersonators. I realize that it can be read differently, but this vision is the one that filled my mind and stayed. As usual, you do wonders with this form. ("Bittersweet" is still my favourite though)
