first pale orange of sky above blackness

of trees, whiteness of half moon by leaf

in foreground, sound of waves in channel

elements of picture, itself

meaning in perception

e.g., the logical character

of construction, fact

grey-white clouds reflected in channel,

shadowed slope of cliff across from it


  1. Hi Stephen,

    Forgive the minutiae-ish question, but di you intend the single spacing of the final couplet/lines?

    More directly, given the double-spacing of all the previous posts, I'm guessing it's just a formatting typo today....

    As you know, I love these posts-poem(s). Keep on keeping on, and continued best wish with it!

  2. Steven, thanks for noting this (typo!) and for the good words (!)
