💫 "we shine back the light that shines on us" 💫


----------

We Were a Palace of Light


last night at sunset

i drove to the cove


and after silly dancing

i strode from the beach


into the sea

until i dove in


joining many others

like happy otters


we bobbed

on our backs


with buoyant grins

we passed to each other


the sky

was a pastel picture

in pink and blue


behind the clouds

it looked like pinterest


for a moment

i couldn't believe


how the buttery surface

of the water


was all dressed up

like the sky


what are the chances

they had the same dress


but then i remembered

that's how reflection works


we shine back the light

that shines on us


last night

it was shining and


we were

the light-filled

opulence of versailles


we were

the hall of mirrors


we were

a palace of light


bobbing there

laughing with our joy


just to be there

at sunset


bobbing in

our bathing suits
