    dotsWhen The Fireflies Aren't Arounddots

    The placid evening emits
    from unwonted quarters around
    the street lamps that- yellow, white, red-
    serve as windows to a prehistoric glow.
    The eaten up progress of the year
    has brought to these oasis of brightness
    insects that dance as if to be
    last-moment will-o-wisps.

    a mosquito has made
    its way inside the train.
    I bend forward to reach out
    And... I miss it.

    But now, the train, from whose window
    I been watching those insects and torches,
    has made its way into the station.
    Time to get down.
    Creatures of mouse-holes
    to reinforce the reign of lamps.

      There's a sense of closeness to some natural mystery in your poems. Your use of light and nature to explore the inner life that entangles with the outer is a bit distancing but at the same time calls the reader closer. It's a great mix.

    I really like the little details in this one, the last couple of lines especially.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
