    The full moon is beautiful over the ocean. I have often waited for one to rise many times disappointed by the weather.

    Very nice writing. American poems aren’t as easy as they look. 🙂

    Well captured, Toni! And shorter poems tend to be my favorites!

    A beautiful truism. We can only admire, never surpass.

    This is wonderful and I love that you make the sentence a question… I love poetry with questions more than those with answers.
