When Politsa Lady headed for sea, I knew I was it was my day;

the treat would be mine, and it was.  I hope it’s yours too.  Memory of her orange reflection on a million wavelets conveys momentum when my energies have none, when affection seems gone forever.

I know  . . . it’s just another oil tanker, this one with

a spare screw and anchor stowed midships, and when

she’s past, her actual image lacks the breath-taking beauty I thought I saw a few minutes earlier, kind of like a morning-after perspective, goggles removed.  But no matter, the memory remains.

Inbound are Houma and tanker Chimborazo, escorted by Laura K.
