Autumn Moon

"Fire by the Water". Gauguin.

“Fire by the Water”. Gauguin.

We walk along this quiet shore
in the middle of the night,
illumined by a full autumn moon.

All the party people who stayed
up laughing around the bonfire
are finding their way to bed.

Only a friend and I are awake,
looking at the long shadows.
