"All is reflection," by Joe DiMino.

As the night
folds in around me
from the edges
narrowing my focus
it is natural
to seek light-
choose a star
or near moon
and become reflection.
In deeper folds
I find
all is reflection
even those fireworks
of insight
nailed to the sky
for a brilliant moment
fall back to the earth
spent shadows
never penetrating night.
