Thomas Wood - Moonlight Lummi Island Cove

we meander the beach at midnight
suspended soft waves and moon
firs rearing black against stardrift
then someone stops, agape
look!   there!   and there!
we all stop.
mesmerized in delight —
phosphorescent winks in curl
of each wave
cold electric green blips
from nowhere, making
sentences of light,
enchantment
