The Moon, the Wind and the Sea was published in the January 2004 issue of Writer's Journal under the title, "The Moon Molten Gold."

the moon molten gold shimmering
into the sea without a word

we had waited by the shore to say good-bye

where we had pulled up silvery fish
and between our fingers let them slip away
and there had felt the cool sand in
our toes as the shovel made tidy walls revealing clams

that was long ago
and now my step is slower
and the song in my mind

keeps pace only with the foaming surf

he is still here, in the bobbing waves
and the shifting breeze
and the warm sand of my


only I cannot touch him.

Touching, yes, Gloria, but so skillfully crafted,
lovely lines top to bottom. =gene.

This deeply touched my heart. I can relate and had expressed a similar loss in a poem entitled, "Jim"

This was incredible. It made me think of that most beautiful hour on the beach, when time stands between night and morning. I loved this poem.
