Moonlight and the Sea (Poem)

For your pleasure this morning, a poem I wrote in 2011 that I thought about last night while seeing the sun dress the San Diego harbor:

Follow the silver parkway
The marshal of nightly hosts preceding

The way is clearly illuminated
With darkness to either side

The path churns idly,
Waiting for its pilgrim

Fraught with danger and cold,
The body not withstanding

But for the journey,
The prize is worth the price

Your destination lies beyond the horizon,
Where no man has yet tread –

The coalescence of the moonlight and the sea.
