FIREFLIES, or brief poems, originated in China and Japan and were often written on pieces of silk. Tagore visited Japan and translated haiku into Bengali. FIREFLIES is a collection of proverbs, aphorisms and maxims. Each firefly, rarely more than a sentence long, represents a luminous thought on love, life, beauty or God. Each page of this book contains a decorative design by Boris Artzybasheff with the short two to three line maxim of Tagores beneath. Hide synopsis

Raise your spirit

by niboodoodlemom on Oct 19, 2008

I was introduced to this book by someone I didn't know. She gave it to a family member for Christmas. From the time I opened it, I was transformed. The value of this book is in the intimate surprise of the ordinary. The lyrical language describes common encounter with mystical joy. To say I love this book in inaccurate. I love the way this book elevates my perception of my experiences on this planet.


Contemplating Life's Simple Pleasures

by Cunard on Aug 14, 2008

This book is one of those I will read forever...every mood one has gives each line new meaning...many time I have used some of the saying to reflect my thoughts towards a death of a loved one, the joy of people starting a life together, etc. This book and its words are priceless
