Light on the Water

Across the water, shines the light:

a bobbing, gilded trail;

a sunset strand of gold and glow

that floating calm across the chop

of purpled-black and ember waves

still leads us on to where the graves

of day’s last sunlight drop

once fought its losing battle—slow:

a spark of fire gone pale

as silhouetted silence brings the night
