silver fish and lightning
luis cuauhtemoc berriozabal

The silver fish
shimmer in the sun
in a milky sea.

The thunder from
a cannon-like storm
shoots out from a cloud.

The sun hides and
darkness envelops the
day. There are no stars.

The silver fish
are like coal black stones
in dark waters.

Spear-like lightning
bolts pelt the ocean
mercilessly and

suddenly stop.
The cloud parts. Sunshine
fills the ocean and

the silver fish
spooked have disappeared
like the cloud above.
