Sunset on a Lake Michigan bay.
Water, turned over
in bright sunlight
cools blue black
under white cap.

The teal divides,
rippled into dark,
no defining midpoint
in the orange spark.

Dusky tangerine
illuminate the dream --
purple fading into blue
above the orb's glow

My dark side
shades black night --
tides in the gray
touched by moonlight.
