Moon Dust
by Laurie Kolp

The moon’s reflection
smiles in the water
at the lone fisherman,
a futile attempt of hope
in a husband’s broken world.
Lost in the sea of his life
and barely able to look out
from the depths of doom,
the man’s grief erupts at last,
as his wife’s ashes
lap in the waves
and the salt from his tears
meets the moon.
