Darwin: a state of grace

        I stand in the companionway, naked to the waist.  A cool west wind touches my skin and is welcomed.
        I am facing the stern which is being held beam on to the wind by tide.  
        I turn left.  The sun has already set, leaving behind infinite shades of orange and red that are beyond words.
        I turn right and find a full moon reflecting infinitely shifting silver facets on the water.
        That I have known such beauty for so long.
