After the deaths of our sons,my husband and I learned to sail and bought a boat. This new activity helped with our recovery. We especially loved to sail at night. This is what I wrote one night, sailing in waters off Saint Clair Shores, Michigan, in the Clinton River.


NIGHT SAILING


  The huge moon rose regally on the horizon,


 Dripping molten gold into dark water.


 


 Rising higher and higher it became, 


Pale white, lighting seascape bright as day.


 


 Stars appeared in the dark night sky,


Looking like pinpricks in a black velvet curtain,


 


Behind which great lights blazed brightly,


Causing each minuscule opening to glisten.


 


 As we headed unwilling toward the shore,


 Land appeared as a glowing open jewel box.


 


The night was balmy the air light and we were,


 High again with the joy of night sailing.
