Yacht Club Pier (poem 2 of the Fairhope series)

we tread lightly in a world so dark
and sneak up to the yacht club pier 
like five children with a secret
under the only light in the universe

How can softness, fearlessness, peace
be realized by eating ice-cream 
in a circle of light
we, being suddenly, newly
aware of each other
and the weight of our lives.

the vast distances of souls
 by the communion of the night
you, knowing me, as i knew you
under the only light in the universe. 

as all time swirled into a single moment
and the ocean leapt for joy.
we, transfigured by the heart of light
tread out into the darkness once more.
