3/16

Sanibel Island, Florida

Dear Ones - the moon's a stamped gold coin

hanging above Ft. Myers' skyline, sky

that first blue mirror of evening, water

a green-blue version of sky, of moon,

and two dark fins of dolphins curve over

again and again, linking our worlds -

for a time I keep up with them, walking

the shore - and I want to say that not all

the beautiful money of the moon is enough

to buy what holds us together, the few

palms, the prickly pear, the tides, the gulls

scavenging the shells washed to shore.
