Rower in Moonlight

Rower in Moonlight

Late returning
along the ink-blue
river, moonlight shone
on the rower’s shoulders,
shone along his arms,
twin streams of light glistening
through the darkness;

the gentle splash
of the blades slicing
the water, the cake
of the water, the dessert
of the feeling of accomplishment
at the finish of his workout;
moonlight frosting all.
