night sky
a swimmer passes
under the bridge

    A fantastical haiku.Here is my reply:

    Two living lights
    at night under the stone bridge:
    swimmer's eyes

    I always enjoy your poems, Martin. Moving from South Bronx to southern New Jersey and the interim "souths" has obviously given you a wide personal outlook.

    Megan . . . I think your follow-up haiku is a gem!

    Martin, a offering, very well enjoyed; Megan, a 'contrary' view, equally well enjoyed. _M

    Hi Martin,
    I'm catching up...this is a beauty!
    Filled with atmosphere -- I feel and
    hear it...the splash of the water...
    along with distant night sounds.
    Fine work!
    ;)

    morning glories--
    beneath same bridge
    same homeless man
