Monday's Riddle: Light in the Dark...

Hello, Riddlers! Can you guess our theme this week? I catch this show from my front porch. When the outdoor symphony chimes in, it's magical! ; ) ~ F

Fix your eye on firefly; flashing, sparking up the sky. Look below water skim; glowing, jellies sink or swim. Snap a photoprotein swirl, catch a twinkle and twirl. Nature dances for delight when you see with in sight. Biology marks this brilliant feature, built into the form of creature. 

What am I referring to? Stop by Wednesday for the answer. 

I gave you a clue!

  5. Bioluminescence. I have never seen a firefly, they aren't anywhere I have lived. I really want to see one.

  9. I think bio-luminescence sounds right, since it includes all those creatures.

  10. Hmmm. I don't know. But I would guess fireflies. I call them lightning bugs. I love watching them at night in the summer - and chasing them - and catching them in my hand. There is a place in the Smokies where people go just to watch them.
