A/N: The definition in the first stanza is from Google.
the biochemical emission of light
by living organisms such as fireflies
and deep-sea fishes.
A sea of lights dance in the depths,
Radiance bursting forth from side,
and head, and esca -- a lure to dangle,
allure to mesmerize unknowing prey.
Complexity and intrigue,
Dances and flashes and tricks,
Patterns to attract mates in the twilight,
Sharply contrasting fins for alarm,
Behavior as fascinating as beautiful.
In the abyss where few souls wander,
Water as heavy as it is deep,
And day as dark as night,
A whole world swims undetected,
Waiting for the day that their light
will be the spark to your passion,
setting your soul afire
with the admiration and compulsion
to surrender your undivided attention
