a fishbowl
lit by reflected light
from a pond

    against the current-
    a struggle
    between child and gravity

    first firefly
    the electrician's shadow
    dissolves across the sheetrock

    Nightly fishing-
    under the searchlights
    blind fishes

    her face
    illuminated by the dim street light --
    darkness all around

    I want to add here my haiku from Albania:

    peaches of your breast
    with a flaming tongue
    I remove the fuss...

    mirrored lake
    reflections of street lamps--
    darkness from it's depth
