This could be the day.
I could slip anchor and wander
to the end of the jetty
uncoil into the waters
a vessel of light moonglade
ride the freshets to sundown

Audre Lorde (1934–1992), U.S. author. “Today is Not the Day,” stanza 7, lines 1-6 (April 22, 1992).

When she wrote this poem, which she dated precisely, Lorde was dying of breast cancer.

  1. Very pretty! Where was this taken?

  2. This is the north side of the Pineda Causeway (SR-404) I’m standing on a boat ramp just to the north of it on US-1. This is in Brevard County, Florida. Just North of Melbourne and south of Rockledge.

  3. This photograph makes me long for the open water, to sail away on a ship and explore the unknown…

  4. I went and looked up freshets in the dictionary– what a poetic word. This is a GREAT word/picture match.

  5. Nice photo. I miss Florida.

  6. I didn’t realize how much I miss Florida, until I processed these photos.
