Last night we drove along the coast,
The moon was full and dewy
and I found my tree.
She looked so prosperous, she was surrounded by so much new growth
Where before, the rock had been cold.
In the water I found the colors I had been searching for
but did not understand
The most brilliant buff coupled with a rich blue-black
One flowing into the other.
Last night the moon taught me how to paint
Watching her full reflection slithering
across black night waves.
